Lacy Student Experiential Center (Lacy Hall)

The 20,000-square-foot, four-story Ann Warrick Lacy Student Experiential Center (Lacy Hall) was designed and constructed to support the needs of students engaged in experiential learning. The Ann Warrick Lacy Experiential Center is located on the third and fourth floors of the building. The third floor, which is at ground level, has large open spaces and a front door large enough to accommodate a vehicle. The fourth floor is divided into various areas, in an open design specifically intended to foster student interaction. Programs and team activities that were previously distributed throughout the Engineering School and elsewhere are now gathered in the building, providing opportunities for students from different teams to help each other in common areas of technology. Students will have access to modern machine tools, including rapid prototyping tools that support the manufacture of parts and devices from computer designs. This shop is for metal and plastic only. NO WOODWORKING TOOLS.
