The goal of the Overman Student Center Expansion project is to provide facilities, programs, services, and amenities that meet the physical, social, educational, cultural, recreational, and intellectual needs of current and future University students and members of the campus community, a goal consistent with the mission of the University.
“The student center is the hub of PSU. It is the place where students gather between classes, grab a bite to eat on their lunch break, attend an organizational meeting, and is home to many exciting events. The expansion of the student center will benefit our campus by providing more services for students and make it a better place where students, staff, and alumni can meet to grow our Pitt State community.” - LINDSAY ONG, SGA Senator
The existing Overman Student Center is a three story building located in the northwest corner of the Pittsburg State University campus. The initial Student Center, dedicated in 1951, had additions constructed in 1963 and 1995 and food service area renovations in 2002. The 93,000 square foot Student Center provides areas for meetings, conferences, seminars, banquets and entertainment as well as lounges.
The project includes these main initiatives.
Treanor Architects from Lawrence and Topeka have been hired and have completed the new design for the building.
Groundbreaking is expected around spring break of 2014 with a completion date of the summer of 2015.
