As in-person classes resume this week, many Stanislaus State students may be stepping on campus for the very first time. Others may be returning, but are unfamiliar with new buildings like the University Student Center and the freshly remodeled Vasche Library. Luckily, we’ve compiled a list of building hours and services and created a campus tour video to help make the transition back to campus a little easier.
