ROCHESTER, N.Y. — Roberts Wesleyan University unveiled its new Golisano Community Engagement Center.

The new $13.9 million building will serve as a hub for connection, community interaction and student life on campus.

Some of the amenities included in the new building are a gaming lounge, study spaces, a new cafe, and more.

“This building was designed specifically to connect Roberts and Rochester,” said Dr. Deana Porterfield, President of Roberts Wesleyan University. “And you will find that each office and space was created with that in mind. It is a place for connection, providing spaces for interaction between our students and local businesses.”

The center was partially funded with $7.5 million gift from Paychex founder Tom Golisano.
