The Bill Moore Student Success Center is located behind the West Stands in Bobby Dodd Stadium. The stadium underwent a major renovation completed in the fall of 1992 which included the construction of the Bill Moore Student Success Center, as well as the addition of 32 executive suites and the renovation of the President’s Box and press level. A donation of $5 million from Bill Moore made this construction possible. The Bill Moore Student Success Center replaced the Knowles Building and now forms an attractive entrance into the stadium. The center opened in January 1993 as a unique location to satisfy both athletic and academic needs. Today, the Bill Moore Student Success Center serves both current and prospective students and houses the Offices of Undergraduate Admission, Student Financial Aid, Career Services, and the President's Scholarship Program.
