The circular facade of meeting room 'pods' of the Griswold Communications Center and its colorful interior decor mark this as one of the most distinctive buildings on campus. The Center was a gift of Vera A. Griswold, honoring her late husband Thomas Griswold, Jr., one of the early executives (and first head of the patent department) of The Dow Chemical Company.
The Center offers facilities for every aspect of learning: computer lab, auditorium with stage, display areas, food service facilities, faculty and staff offices, audio visual and management information services centers and a popular dining room which is used as a classroom and for numerous public functions. The second floor Lecture Hall seats 200 or more; the first level Dining Room seats 175.
