The Commons Building built in 1965 was a significant departure from the Brick Collegiate Gothic style of the campus's original buildings. It was designed in a contemporary architectural style and the building tried to accommodate several functions, a design that over the years proved unsuccessful. The building and adjacent structures were recently remodeled and a new façade added to transform the structure into a Modern Academic Gothic style in keeping with the original campus architecture. It incorporates the original eating hall that became the student union in 1965 and continues to serve that function with an attached café.
