National and State Register

Clubhouse / Student Union

Weld County

The 1916 Student Union stands as an important record of New Deal construction programs in eastern Colorado, reflecting the extensive assistance the Colorado State College of Education (now UNC) received from the PWA to remake its campus during the 1930s.  The building was the center of social life for the students of the College hosting events such as teas, mixers, dances, and banquets.

It was also important in the history of the college as the first building constructed specifically for women.  The original Clubhouse reflects Craftsman design while the Student Union expansion in 1939 exhibits Collegiate Gothic style. The property is associated with the New Deal Resources on Colorado’s Eastern Plains Multiple Property Submission.
