The long and low south side

Although the student center is three stories high, from the south its profile is unobtrusive. This 90,000 square feet plus building is clad with white and gray Georgia marble.

The south entrance

The building on the right of all these photographs is Alumni Memorial Hall by Ivey and Crook. The entrance facade of this Classical/Renaissance building is incorporated in the interior of Dobbs Center.
