UMSL Chancellor Tom George, cheerleader Emily Frenz and mascot Louie the Triton point out the new elevator button at the America’s Center parking garage on June 9 while cheerleader Brad Flynn looks on. The fifth floor of the parking structure is now designated the UMSL floor.

The University of Missouri–St. Louis Tritons now share something in common with the St. Louis Cardinals and St. Louis Rams. All three teams have a designated level bearing their name at the America’s Center Parking garage in downtown St. Louis.

Chancellor Tom George – along with mascot Louie the Triton and UMSL cheerleaders – marked the occasion with an impromptu photo last Thursday. The fifth floor of the parking structure adjacent to the center at 701 Convention Plaza now bears signage with the university’s name and official red and gold colors.

“It’s great that UMSL is recognized among St. Louis’ finest athletic organizations and that the longstanding partnership between UMSL and America’s Center continues to grow,” George said. “The center has helped us share the university’s many accomplishments with the region by hosting UMSL’s annual Chancellor’s Report to the Community for many years.”

The Chancellor’s Report to the Community has been held at the America’s Center for 15 years. The event averages 900 attendees each year and highlights the achievements of the university.
