Stop #1: The Administration Building

The Administration building stands on the former site of the South Bend Watch Factory, which was founded by a group of German watchmakers and was ultimately purchased by the Studebaker Brothers in 1902. By 1922,  a million Americans walked round sporting a watch from this factory! This successful clockworks eventually gave life to the River Park neighborhood that grew to surround the factory.

Now, the Administration Building serves as a one-stop-shop for any of a student’s needs. On the first of the building, you can find the Office of Admissions, the Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships, and much, much more!
