Swank Student Center

When The Kiski School wanted to build the hub of student life they turned to Mosites Construction Company to build the Swank Student Center.  The student center was built to enhance socialization, personal interests and leisure activities outside the classroom.

The building features two floors of student services and activities.  Housed in the Student Center are the Kiski Book Store, a place for students and parents to go for school supplies and dormitory needs and a snack stand with full kitchen providing the Kiski community with meals morning, noon and night. Other areas include a vending area, college counseling offices, the Kiski Yearbook office, radio station for broadcasting sporting events and offices of the Directors of Student Activities and Residential Life.  Activities at the student center include dances, sports parties, open mike nights, game nights and tournaments.
