This year's altitude conference will be held at the University Center on Lehigh University's campus. The University Center, formally known as Packer Hall, was the first building erected on Lehigh's campus in 1866. The building demonstrates a High Victorian Gothic style. It was designed by Edward Potter to serve as a multipurpose building and a central gathering place for students. To this day the University Center holds this same purpose as it houses several student and faculty dining halls, art displays, and larger rooms used for professor instruction and community service events.
