Kansas State has many public facilities and places for students to use, one of the most popular being the K-State Student Union. Not only is it a place to study and eat, but it is also often a place for events and conferences on campus.

For example, this year’s KSUnite was held in the Union Ballroom. It is also home to Coffee Hour, which happens Wednesdays at 7 p.m.

“I participated in every coffee hour event. I think this event is very meaningful and very helpful to me,” Zhuoya Li, junior in statistics and data science, said.

After Hale Library was closed following the May 22 fire, the union has also taken on a lot of responsibility regarding study spaces and information services. Throughout the building there are spaces, centered mostly on the second and third floors, for students in need of study spaces.

There are also meeting rooms for students to discuss in groups and additional conference rooms. Additional printers and public computers have been added as well.

“Every weekend I go to the meeting room on the third floor of the union for study groups— it was useful,” Neeshmy Lopez, sophomore in computer engineering, said.
