About the James Pedas Communication Center
The 20,000 square foot Pedas Center opened in 2014. It is home to the Department of Media, Communication and Public Relations, as well as the Office of Admission. The academic spaces in the $6.8 million building include the amphitheater style Stamm Lecture Hall, flexible classrooms, collaborative areas and a 24-hour computer lab with more than 20 computers. Trustee emeritus Dr. James Pedas, a 1950 graduate of Thiel College and recipient of an honorary doctorate from the College in 1989, provided the lead gift for the project. Students from all majors benefit from the Pedas Center as they get instruction on how to incorporate modern communication methods into their professional lives. The Pedas Center was recognized in February 2015 as a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design silver certified building for its conservation techniques and commitment to renewable resources.
