Purdue University North Central has received a donation from the Porter County Community Foundation to underwrite the naming rights to an Information Kiosk to be located in the main entrance in the PNC Student Services and Activities Complex.
The Student Services and Activities Complex is currently under construction and is expected to open in spring, 2016. The kiosk will be a prominent feature in the entrance area and will be a valuable resource for building and campus visitors.
The Porter County Community Foundation’s mission is to inspire giving and philanthropy among all members of the community and to improve the lives of all Porter County residents by helping to create a community where everyone has the opportunity to achieve their full potential.
There is a strong Porter County presence on the PNC campus. This fall semester, of the 6,158 students enrolled at PNC, 2,184 of them are Porter County residents. In addition, there are 3,746 PNC alumni living in Porter County.
The generosity of more than 130 donors provided financial support for the $34 million Student Services and Activities Complex that is expected to be the hub of student activity on campus. It will measure 102,239 gross square feet and will feature the H.D. Kesling Gymnasium, locker rooms, a walking track, fitness rooms, wellness center and fitness area will be open to students, faculty and staff. There will be a game room, student study lounge and ample space for student club offices and activities. A variety of athletic, wellness and recreation programs will be available to help students, faculty and staff set personal health goals for themselves and their families to achieve their personal best for weight control and healthy lifestyles.
Intramural sports programs that currently meet off-campus will have a home in the Student Services and Activities Complex, giving more student athletes the opportunity to enjoy their favorite sports and activities. The Great Hall will host campus and community events.
