Hayden-Clark Alumni Center

Built as an architectural companion to iconic Bradley Hall, the Hayden-Clark Alumni Center is a nod to Bradley's history. Visitors can explore the university's past through displays and interactive presentations in the first floor Shaheen Halll of Pride. Dorms come to life in miniature models of rooms from past decades, while digital galleries highlight campus life and artifacts honor university founder Lydia Moss Bradley.

The third floor is home to the Peplow Pavilion, which provides an upscale setting for alumni reunions, wedding receptions and other special events. It looks westward over the Alumi Quad and Circle of Pride.

Additionally, HCAC is home to offices for alumni relations and the vice president for advancement.
