Home |University Life

The Centennial Student Union is the students’ House of Serendipity offering pleasant surprises that INVITE, INVOLVE and INSPIRE.

The health and safety of our students, staff, faculty and guests are paramount. Please keep these four simple guidelines in mind: 1) Not feeling well? Stay home! 2) Wash your hands regularly. 3) Physical distancing is important—stay six feet apart. 4) Wear a face covering at all times indoors, except when eating and/or drinking. COVID-19 and the Campus Community

"I like to call the Union the House of Serendipity. You go for one thing and you get more than you bargained for. It's inescapable. It gets into your head and into your heart, and you're never the same again. The right union will change you." - C. Shaw Smith Association of College Unions International



At the CSU, an invitation to experience "serendipity" translates into discoveries that feed the body, mind and spirit.



The CSU offers countless opportunities for student involvement and personal enrichment. Visit Student Activities to learn more.



Together people and places inspire creativity, conversation and confidence.
