As the first building on Southern State Community College's new Brown County campus, the facility strives to raise the bar on design and be a source of pride for the College and surrounding community by serving as an iconic and modern building with a strong presence. All spaces were planned to encourage student and faculty interaction, accountability, and trust. Technology-rich learning environments include general classrooms and laboratories, as well as a learning commons.

The building includes a two-story main building lobby where a Help Desk and lounge space create a welcoming and energetic atmosphere upon entering the new facility. Accessed directly off of this lobby are the campus' "One Stop Shop" spaces, which provide students a convenient access to staff providing financial aid assistance, registration support, and other services critical to providing a first class educational experience.

A spacious community room offers both the College and the Brown County community a new venue for large events and gatherings, while also providing an opportunity for this space to be used as an additional large classroom in the event the expected growth of Southern State's new campus is realized even sooner than anticipated. A bookstore, dedicated student lounge, centrally-located tutoring rooms, open and closed study areas, faculty offices, and administrative offices are also included in the new facility.
