The Mosaic Lounge & Committee

The Mosaic Lounge, located in the Student Center, is a space that the Department of Student Activities manages. Student organization facilitated programs and meetings related to cultural, faith, and social justice themes are favored for scheduled use of it. During non-COVID times when this space is not scheduled for use, it has been a favorite spot for our South Asian Student Association and Muslim Student Association to meet in.

The Mosaic Committee – is a committee of the Student Union Board of Governors. All student-run cultural, faith, and social justice clubs leaders are considered members and invited to monthly meetings. This committee is basically a steering committee of like-minded student-run organizations that advise on interventions and programs related to diversity.

This lounge is part of Student Activities and the Student Center's offerings.

Tranquility Room

The Student Union Board Of Governors, and several student organizations, including the Muslim Student Organization, Jewish Student Association, Christian Students At Central and others, suggested the need for a quiet location that students could gather to pray, meditate, relax or read quietly. Students wanted a location that had good lighting control, a calming water feature, comfortable furniture, and a place to store prayer rugs, books and literature about relaxation and de-stressing. In 2013 the University approved the use of a space in Memorial Hall and opened The Tranquility Room.
