1 SSID for big building

I need to create one SSID Wireless Network for a big building. Hoping to use a total of 10 WAPs - probably the NETGEAR ProSAFE WAC720s as they seem to be rated highly.

Each one will be wired into a switch connected to our router.
Would I simply configure each one with the same security settings and SSID?
Or would I configure repeater, multipoint bridge mode, or something else?

I am not too familiar with the different modes that are supported by APs.

Hi Craig... Thanks for the reply.

 Would this be the same method used by a State University school?
I know at SDSU I can walk around the HUGE campus and the connection never drops.
Yes, although it's a bit more complicated. You need a controller and RADIUS server for that.
