INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) - During a ceremony Saturday morning, Marian University broke ground on Alumni Hall, its new student center.
The university expects the facility to open in the fall of 2014. It is a 19,000 square foot, one-story facility that will house the university’s bookstore and be used as a gathering space for students, staff and faculty, according to a release.
Alumni Hall will also feature outdoor seating and an indoor food court. It’s projected that the project will cost a total of $9 million at its completion.
This is the second major construction project on the campus this year. In August, the university opened the Michael A. Evans Center for Health Sciences, home to its new College of Osteopathic Medicine and the Alan and Sue Leighton School of Nursing.
That project directly created 318 jobs and had an economic impact of $57 million.
