Opened in early 1969, the Manford A. Shaw Center is named after the college president who served from 1968–1976. President Shaw was a Westminster graduate and earned degrees from Yale and the University of Utah. He was also a college trustee. His term saw a much needed Union Building and Malouf Hall added to campus.
And over the years, the building has seen many changes. Originally, it included the campus post office and a small health center. On January 6, 1969 a dining room and snack bar were moved from Walker Hall. The lower level once housed a gathering place known as "The Ghetto" and the bookstore was dedicated in 1982.
Since its renovation in 2001, the Shaw Student Center is still the hub of activity on campus. Located across Tanner Plaza from Converse, Shaw is where you can check-out the day's menu, buy your texts at the bookstore, or discuss plans for after graduation at the Career Resource Center.
