Wichita State holds groundbreaking for Student-Athlete Success Center

June 19, 2019 - 10:36 am

Wichita State University hosted the groundbreaking ceremony for the new Student-Athlete Success Center on Tuesday; the ceremony took place on the lawn southeast of Charles Koch Arena.

The project has two main components. The largest is the construction of the Student-Athlete Success Center, a 36,000-square-foot facility devoted to the academic and athletic development of Wichita State student-athletes. The two-level building, to be located south of Koch Arena, will feature a 2,500-square-foot study hall, tutoring rooms, and a larger computer center. WSU’s track and cross country programs will have a dedicated space in the facility.

A smaller component of the project is the renovation of administrative offices inside Koch Arena to create more space for the men’s basketball, women’s basketball, and volleyball programs.

Construction is set to begin later this month, and the project is expected to be substantially complete in July 2020.

The project is funded by private donations through a fundraising campaign led by the WSU Foundation and WSU Athletics.
