The K-State Student Union issued a request for proposal from qualified restaurant bidders for six restaurants to occupy the newly renovated Union. The Union is moving to a new dining services operating model that will replace its current food court with six separate restaurants. These restaurants will replace the Union's current contract-managed dining program.

Sauder Furniture Company mobile showroom came to campus to provide students, faculty and staff the opportunity to view multiple pieces from the company's education furniture line and provide input for the upcoming renovation.
