Project: Renovation of the Younger Family Campus Center

Architects: Workshop Architects, Boelter (kitchen design)

Contractor: The Boldt Co.

Costs: $9 million     

Completed: August 2018

Lakeland University completed a significant renovation of its Younger Family Campus Center on its main campus in Sheboygan County in time for the 2018-’19 school year.

The 54-year-old facility closed in the summer of 2017 as the $9 million project began. It included improvements to the food and drink options and the meeting/study/lounge spaces.

“Students are thrilled with the changes – stunned, actually,” said David Gallianetti, director of external relations for Lakeland University. “The changes were made to turn this into a focal point for student activity on campus, and that has happened.”

Features of the renovated facility include the Leonard & Dolores Gentine Center for Leadership & Community Outreach. The space has an Entrepreneur Studio and four flex rooms.

The Lauer Center for Student Success & Development, also located in the building, is home to Lakeland’s student success coaches, career development and the Cooperative Education office.

The Daily Grind coffee shop moved to a larger space and includes expanded food options, a wide selection of drinks and a large bar area. The Pub is an expanded bar/grill in the building. Also, university dining services has a new kitchen in the building and lunch and dinner options have been expanded.
