The Grand Lobby
Entering the Goppert Performing Arts Center for performances, visitors will be welcomed by an airy, two-story lobby and grand staircase.
More than 19% of all Avila undergraduates are involved with the performing arts on campus in some manner (and that’s not counting all of the students who attend performances). Add in all of the faculty, staff, and the thousands from the Kansas City community who walk through the Goppert Performing Arts doors, and it’s easy to see that Avila University is truly at the center of the arts scene in south KC.
