• Feeling creative? Help name our newest building! The nearly completed brick structure on Oakland Street between East 3rd and Sawyer streets needs a name that is quintessentially “TWU,” and we invite your ideas.  In addition to nearly 600 parking spaces, the building also will house our Office of Human Resources, Department of Public Safety, a student testing center, student lounge with dining options, and even outdoor patio space.  We anticipate it will be a busy place—so we hope you can help us come up with a memorable TWU-inspired name!
