Through the generosity of Arthur S. Holden, Lake Erie College completed the Holden Center in 1997. The Holden Center houses the bookstore, reception/lounge area, student life offices, student government offices, security, student mailboxes, vending areas, study areas, computer center, classrooms, telecommunications center, faculty offices and conference rooms. By design and intention, this center is a student center.
In the Holden Center, students eat their meals and participate in activities organized by student clubs and the student development department. This Center is also the home of the Lake Erie College bookstore and the student development suite. Throughout the academic year, the Arthur S. Holden Center is the venue for concerts and other performances.
