The building was completely gutted and redesigned to be the primary homes of the Departments of Psychology and Political Science.  The middle floor houses offices for full and part-time faculty, the peer advising office, and administrative offices for the Department of Psychology.  This floor also includes a computer lab, several classrooms and meeting rooms, as well as offices for our student organizations and graduate assistants. Some facilities within the building were also developed for Graduate Psychology, Sociology, and the College of Science and Math.
