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.
In the heart of the KSU campus, St. Isidore’s Catholic Student Center stands as a monumental project in Manhattan, Kansas, showcasing the dedication to and craftsmanship of its construction. Throughout the process, the project team ensured the satisfaction of numerous stakeholders by offering alternative design options and maintaining open lines of communication bringing beauty and function to this iconic space.
