The UAMS campus bookstore recently transitioned to exclusively providing online services. This change provided the opportunity to re-purpose and renovate the building which previously housed the bookstore into a space designated for students. The new Student Center offers programs and services designed to enhance the academic environment of the University, as well as provide a place for students from all colleges to gather and participate in multidisciplinary social activities.
The grand opening for the Student Center was held September 16 and featured a combination of events:
- Constitution Day and voter registration,
- student resource fair, and
- popular movie ticket sales.
