A center for the community

The hub of the Union Drive residence neighborhood, a multi-function community center, is nearly complete.

Food purchase options include a convenience store with deli and Clyde's non-alcohol sports restaurant on the lower level, and the Marketplace, a multi-station, all-you-care-to-eat facility on the second floor with seating for 815.

The building also has an ISU document center, fitness room, multi-purpose room, several private dining rooms and the post office for the Union Drive neighborhood.

Clyde's and the convenience store open Aug. 18; the Marketplace begins serving Aug. 22.

Dining payment options for faculty and staff include cash, Cy Cash (added on your ISU Card) and a dining charge account (credits deducted from your paycheck).

The community center will be dedicated during a Sept. 5 open house. A short program begins at 3 p.m.; tours and refreshments will follow at approximately 3:30 p.m.
