White Creek Community Center is Open!

The Department of Residence Life is pleased to announce that the newly constructed White Creek Community Center (WCCC) is now open.

WCCC is designed to serve the on-campus residents of White Creek Apartments on the west campus in the same way as the first floor of Hullabaloo Hall and the Southside Commons are for residents of the north and south sides, and the Gardens Apartment Community Center on the northeast side of campus.

The WCCC is filled with natural light and features graphic art depicting the Aggie Core Values and hosts a piece of art from the University’s collection.  At night, you can see “HOWDY” spelled out in neon light across the front of the building. Additionally, the Multipurpose Rooms host two of the pieces of Wildflower Glass that once hung in the Memorial Student Center.  The exterior landscaping design was done by Coleman & Associates.

The WCCC houses the Department of Residence Life’s Academic Support Initiatives staff, although their programs and services are distributed across all on-campus housing.
