About the Student Center 2

Our History

  • The Parkside Union was built in 1976 at a cost of $3.5 million, funded entirely by Student Fees.
  • The Parkside Union was redecorated and refurbished in the spring of 1989.
  • In 2004, the Segregated Fee Allocation Committee and Parkside Student Government approved $21 million in student fees to fund a renovation and expansion of the current facility. 
  • In 2006, the Segregated Fee Allocation committee approved an additional 1.1 million for the project.
  • In January 2009, the Parkside Union officially reopened and was renamed the "Parkside Student Center." This new name describes what the building is all about - a great place to eat, relax, hang out - the center of Student Life.
