Edwards Commons

 EDWARDS COMMONS, a new 44,000-square-foot campus center, was completed in August 2012. It contains the campus store; student mailboxes; the dining room and bistro; student programming space; a game room; student government offices; conference rooms; Career Development Center, counseling center, health and wellness clinic, and the student life office. The original Edwards Commons was destroyed by fire in October 2010. Edwards Commons was named for the late John W. and Lucille Welman Edwards of Batesville. Mr. Edwards was a former trustee and banker.
