The Blanchard Great Room is home to public events such as student performances, movies, experimental theater, parties, and craft nights, to name a few. The multi-purpose venue provides an intimate performance area that seats 250, or a dance club space for 400. The venue schedule is kept by Conference and Event Services at x2153, and events are registered through the Office of Student Programs. Tech needs are serviced by the Technical Director. 

Blanchard boasts a variety of spaces where you can settle in and catch a nap or a conversation. There are charging tables so that you can work on your laptop, or you might just take a break in the comfy chairs and couches. Play pool or foos-ball on the lower level, and catch up with friends. 

Blanchard has meeting rooms for 10-20 people, most of which are mediated, and are reserved through Conference and Event Services via the Campus Space Request Form.
