The village's rain garden provides several environmental benefits and is the future of stormwater management.

The seamless integration of technology and design allows people to take full advantage of their own talents and abilities. Lakeside Village’s fully equipped academic and community spaces will contribute to the overall success of the campus community.

LEED Gold Certification

Innovative design features such as rooftop green spaces, a rain garden and expected LEED Gold Certified construction will support the sustainability initiatives of our campus and local communities.

  • aerialThe village’s green roofs reduce and slow down water runoff, provide food for pollinator species of animals, naturally insulate the building, and absorb carbon dioxide to clean the air and help regulate the climate
  • Insulated walls and enhanced window glazing help to regulate the interior temperature without relying on cooling or heating systems
  • Innovative heating and cooling systems are designed to condition and filter the air as well as re-purpose it for other uses throughout the facility
  • Existing trees and plant life were evaluated and, when possible, were incorporated into the landscape of Lakeside Village or located elsewhere on campus or in the surrounding local area

Exhibition Center

From art shows and career fairs to banquets and award ceremonies, the unfinished interior of the 7,100-square-foot Exhibition Center allows event planners to design the space to meet their needs.


The 200-seat Auditorium will be equipped with state-of-the-art audio-visual technology to allow concerts, movie screenings and other performance events to take place all within this space. The Auditorium’s retractable seating allows the space to transform from a theater to an open, multi-functional space for banquets, galas or other presentations and ceremonies.
