The Harold Walter Siebens School of Business/Siebens Forum is the center of activity on campus. Named for a major benefactor, whose gift of $18 million in 1980 was the largest per student gift at that time, the building contains classrooms, various services for students, an auditorium, dining facilities, and has conference facilities for use by organizations from both on and off campus.
It is a two and a half acre underground building with a southern exposure, constructed in this way to conserve energy and to preserve the view of Storm Lake for the rest of campus. The Romanesque arches on the exposed facades have become a binding stylistic element for all subsequent buildings on campus.
