E. L. Turbon Student Center
The Center is the “home away from home” for students. Here you can relax, study, visit with friends, eat, or merely engage in competitive gaming. Playing pool between classes is another favorite Center activity.
The Turbon Student Center is a multi-purpose facility and serves as the focal point for Student Life at St. Philip's College.
The Center has meeting rooms, a snack area, a big screen TV for gaming, a television for viewing, a lounge, and houses the Student Government Association's office, African American Men on the Move, Coaches' offices, and International Student Association office.
