Palm Court

Palm Court is where it all happens.

Palm Court is where it all happens. When it opened in 1965, planted with Royal Palms, this courtyard was officially enshrined in student documents as the “Center of the Universe” and has remained a popular student gathering spot for parties and events.

Palm Court lore has developed its own vernacular. “Walls” are weekly social gatherings where students roll out speakers to blast beats, hang out and dance the night away under the palms. “COUPs” are large Center of the Universe Parties for special occasions such as Halloween or graduation. COUPs are like walls, but bigger and with more decorations.
