OXFORD -- It's a big first weekend for the new $46 million student center at Miami University of Ohio.
The 203,000-square-foot Armstrong Student Center opened Monday. It has banquet rooms and a technology-free meditation center and serves breakfast, lunch, dinner and dessert.
The three-floor center is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Many of the ideas for the center came from students.
Two-thirds of the project was financed by more than 11,000 donors. Students paid for part with a $115 per semester fee.
The center is a combination of new construction and retrofitting. It takes the place of the former ROTC building as well as some other facilities.
