Ernest S. Sterling Student Life Center (SSLC)
The SSLC is the epicenter of campus life here at TSU. Students from all over the university converge on this part of campus to engage in the unique social, cultural ( And yes, even educational!) activities at one of Texas’s premiere HBCUs. Located on the famous Tiger Walk, the Student Center is home to the Student Government Association (SGA), University Program Council (UPC), Herald Newspaper, Tiger Yearbook, Office of Campus Organizations, TSU Cheerleaders, and Student Activities administrative offices.
Student Life Center staff and students know that the events/programs sponsored under the auspices of Student Activities give students the opportunity to implement their ideas in a creative, practical, learning environment.
On any given day, students can be found socializing with classmates, fraternity brothers/sorority sisters, or just plain old friends in the lobby, game room, or in front of the SSLC building. Student organizations sponsor events in the Student Center that range from educational seminars to autograph signings of up and coming Hip Hop and R&B artists.
Also located in the Student Life Center are the Sodexo Food Services: Cafeteria, Chick fila and Bengal Burgers, Barnes & Noble Bookstore, the Copy Center as well as Barber & Beauty Servicess.
