In 1999, Illinois Wesleyan’s Student Senate issued a 30-page report to the university’s Board of Trustees. Its language was powerful, plainly stated, and clearly heartfelt. In detail, it described the dissatisfaction many students felt about campus social life, and what had been done at other colleges to address comparable problems. The report concluded with a simple recommendation: "that Illinois Wesleyan solve these problems through the creation of a new student center."
