The arena isn#25;t the only area for entertainment at the University Center. Along with the large arena, there are many other smaller venues that hold many different sized groups. Many events have food and drinks, but no outside food or beverages are allowed to be brought into the University Center. The University Center also has a state-of-the art sound system.
The University Center is located on the campus of Southeastern Louisiana University and holds a variety of events from sports to concerts, conferences and trade shows. The center first opened in 1982 and cost $16.3 million to construct at the time. The biggest part of the center is the 15,000 square foot arena, which can hold more than 7,500 patrons in the fixed seats plus 1,400 on the arena floor.
