The Center for Global Studies was built as the university gymnasium. On October 12, 1964, the West Pine gym hosted a standing room only audience of 3,900 who came to listen to Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. speak, October 12, 1964. Two days later, Dr. King learned that he had been awarded the 1964 Nobel Peace Prize.
