Convocation Academic Center (CAC)
The Convocation Academic Center is located across Washington Avenue from the Norman C. Francis Science Complex. It is specifically located at 7910 Stroelitz Street.
This 97,597 square foot facility, has the capability of accommodating 4,600 people, and is where the university’s convocations and Baccalaureate ceremonies are held, in addition to sports events, tournaments, and concerts, to name a few of its many functions. The Convocation Academic Center doubles as the new gymnasium as well, replacing the former gym (The Barn) that was declared over 50% damaged from Hurricane Katrina. The CAC features a state-of-the-art video replay scoreboard/jumbotron (XULAtron). This project was completed in October of 2012. We are reaching our goal to achieve Silver LEED Certification.
