History of the Student Center
Formerly known as the College Union, the student center was renamed in 1964 after former Mines President Ben Parker, who was also a Mines graduate, faculty member and trustee. The Student Center shares a courtyard with the Traditional Residence Halls: Morgan, Thomas, Bradford and Randall halls. Several additions and renovations were made in the 1990s, 2000s and most recently in 2015.
