Biographical / Historical

Since its completion in 1952, the L. A. Pittenger Student Center has served as a gathering place for many student organizations and services on campus. The center hosts educational, recreational, cultural, and social activities for the Ball State community. It also contains the Tally food court, a barbershop, a bowling alley, a post office, and a hotel.

The student center was dedicated on November 20, 1952 to honor Lemuel A. Pittenger, who served as president of the university from 1927 to 1942. Since the original construction of the building, there have been two additions to the facility (1959 and 1994) and two major renovations of the interior (2005 and 2010).
