The Nest. Yep, the name “Student Center” wasn’t quite inspiring enough for us, so we decided to choose a name with a little more personality. A nest is a place of nurturing. It is a shelter in the storm and a home of comfort and safety in a difficult world. It is also the place where little birds learn to fly. It is where they find a mentor that takes them under wing and teaches them through example. When they are ready, they step off the edge in a leap of faith and launch into the wild blue on their own. We thought it was fitting.
