The Power Plant, an impressive Gothic-style structure, meets the energy needs for campus.

Building offices


The pseudo Gothic design of native limestone reflected the architectural character of surrounding buildings on campus during the time the building was constructed in 1927-1928. The west facade, facing N. Martin Luther King Jr. Drive, was left incomplete. The building cost a total of more than $300,000 to build and equip over two years, and several additional cooling systems have been added in recent years.
