The Steinman College Center opened in the spring of 1976, and was dedicated in the fall of 1978 in honor of two local philanthropists, James Hale and John F. Steinman. The building was designed by M. Yamasaki, architect of the World Trade Towers in New York City.
Today, the Steinman College Center is a student run facility offering a wide variety of services, programs and opportunities to the entire Franklin & Marshall community. The College Center acts as the “living room” of the College, a place where students, faculty, professional staff and guests meet and share a variety of social, educational, cultural and recreational experiences. It is the unifying force on campus.
