Summary: Completed in 1990, Witherspoon Center was intended to replace and expand upon the existing Student and Cultural Center. Witherspoon is home to the African-American Cultural Center, the campus cinema, and several student-run campus publications. It is a key building in the new student services courtyard that includes Harris and Pullen Halls. The Witherspoon Student Center is named after Augustus M.
