St. Isidore's Catholic Student Center was originally built in 1963 and got its name from Isidore, patron of farmers. The St. Isidore's Catholic Student Center project was completed in three-phases which included a renovation, an addition and new construction. The original sanctuary was demolished and the new sanctuary, which doubled the size of the original, was built in its place. The student center received a complete interior and exterior renovation as well as a kitchen addition. Throughout the entire construction timeframe, the student center remained open and operational to the students.
