Visit Us at the Kendra Scott Center

In the spring of 2019, Kendra Scott and the College of Fine Arts collaborated to redesign the existing student lounge located in the Doty Fine Arts Building.  The renovated lounge has been renamed the Kendra Scott Center.  It serves as a student hub for counseling, recruiting, mentorship, collaboration, entrepreneurship, independent study, and social gatherings.

The Kendra Scott Center (KS Center) is managed by the College of Fine Arts Office of Student Affairs (CoFA Student Affairs) and the Kendra Scott Women’s Entrepreneurship Leadership Institute (KS WELI).
