BROOKINGS, S.D. – South Dakota State University says construction of its American Indian Student Center has been completed.

The 12,000-square-foot center is located on the north end of the Rotunda Green in the area between Abbott Hall and Harding Hall, according to information provided by the university.

"The new and improved AISC is great for all Indigenous youth because it makes students feel a part of a community, sort of like a home away from home," said Lars King, a sophomore from Rosebud. "It helps us ease into the transition of college life and will be a place to make new lifelong friendships with others. That is a very important factor because most of us are not away from our communities often."
