Union renovation update
Submitted by Audrey Taggart-Kagdis
Renovations to the K-State Student Union started in September and have really taken off recently. On your next visit to the Union, you will witness some major changes; however, the Union remains open and continues to provide all services.
• Five food trucks will be parked on Bosco Student Plaza and will serve from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday-Friday. Enjoy your lunch from the trucks and bring your meal into the Union. Dining seating will be available in the lower level and on the first and second floors. Each truck will accept cash, credit cards and CatCash.
• The Union Bowling Center remains open. Take advantage of this unique recreational opportunity and enjoy expanded food and beverage options.
• Subway Restaurant, in the lower level, was remodeled in July and offers a delicious lineup of sandwiches and salads. Subway will be open at 7 a.m. Monday-Friday and offer a breakfast menu. Download the Subway app to order online and your order will be ready for pick up. No waiting!
• The Union's food partnership with Sodexo has come to an end. When the first floor reopens next year, a series of mini restaurants will be available, including Panda Express, Qdoba Mexican Restaurant, Just Salads, Call Hall Ice Cream Shop, Chick-fil-A and a sports bar/grill modeled after JP's in Jardine Apartments. All catering in the Union will now be through an approved caterer system. The list of approved caterers can be found here.
• Radina's is coming to the Union! Service begins today in the former Caribou Coffee location until it relocates to its permanent space. Hours of operation this week are 7:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Monday-Friday. The Cats' Den convenience store will remain open throughout the renovation.
• The K-State Campus Store in the Union is open, but getting there is a bit tricky. The best route is to enter the Union from the south doors and go to the ground floor from either the south elevator or stairwell. Once on the ground floor, head toward Forum Hall. The Campus Store entrance is right there. If you go a bit further, you can access the ATMs on the ground floor.
• The first floor of the Union can still be accessed from the north, east and south entrances. You can travel through the first floor from north to south, passing Cats' Den, Radina's, Union Computer Store, the Multicultural Student Offices, Commerce Bank, the K-State ID Center and the Copy Center.
• The second floor will be receiving new carpeting and furniture in January. The floor will remain open and accessible. The Office of Student Activities and Services and the K-State Veterans Center are operating on this floor.
Frequent updates will be provided through K-State Today and I encourage you to follow the Union's Twitter feed at @k-state_union and our Facebook page using the hashtag #YourUnion. More detailed information also can be found on the Your Union website.
