Golden Student Success Center Update

September 2016 | Student Affairs

The Golden Library is undergoing significant renovations that will result with the renaming of the building to the Golden Student Success Center (GSSC). The Golden Student Success Center will still be our library with traditional library services but will have additional services such as tutoring and academic advising in the building. The GSSC will house customizable group study areas, a cafe, and presentation spaces along with individual study spaces and many more resources for students and employees. Until June 2018, the library functions have been relocated to Bernalillo Hall. The resulting GSSC will continue Eastern's history of renovating and updating our facilities to meet the needs of our Greyhounds and our campus.
