The Florence Walter Student Service Center served as the campus library from 1947-2001, when it was renovated for use as a service center for students. It now houses Student Accounts, the Registrar, the Office of Financial Aid, enrollment management, the campus ministry, student employment, and the university assessment center. Additionally, campus police have several offices for training and equipment storage. There are also faculty offices located in the renovated building, the remainder of which will continue to be used for book storage.
