The University Center was renamed the Sadler Center in honor of Sam Sadler, class of 1964, M.Ed. 1971. The name change was announced during the College of William and Mary's commencement ceremony on May 11, 2008. The building was dedicated as a $12.5 million student activities building in 1993. "Located adjacent to Zable Stadium, today the three-story complex houses everything from the Commonwealth Auditorium – the College’s largest auditorium after Phi Beta Kappa Hall -- to a number of multi-purpose rooms used by students, faculty and staff. It also is home to one of the College’s largest dining halls as well student post office, retail and recreation space." The new Cohen Career Center is adjacent to the Sadler Center.
