The Student Union serves the campus as the focal point for an informal education. Among its many facilities are lounges, check cashing service, automatic teller machine, food service areas, bowling, billiards, film theatre, computer lab, copy service, ballroom, barber shop, bookstore, meeting rooms, and much more. The facilities are in constant use by various campus groups, individual students, and off-campus groups from the community and area. The Program Board, appointed by the Student Senate, is responsible for the entertainment and social programs which take place on campus. This student committee has the responsibility of programming movies, dances, homecoming, concerts, art displays, games tournaments, speakers, family programming, and many other activities.
The Student Union Program Office is also home for Special Delivery Productions, the program responsible for providing activities to part-time students. This program modifies traditional student activities to meet the needs of commuting and non-traditional students. Programs are presented both on campus and in outlying towns where commuter students live.

The Student Affairs offices in the hypostyle include the Dean and Associate Dean of Student Affairs and the International Student Advisor. Other offices within the building include non-credit continuing education, the arts and crafts center, the outdoor program office, the wilderness equipment rental center, the program board office, the ticket office, reservations and catering, Marriott Foods, the student employment office, post office, and the university newspaper.
