- IU Historical Marker (2020)
Indiana University dedicated a historical marker in 2020 about the Northside Hall of IUSB. The marker text follows:
Designed as a comprehensive educational center, the first building constructed for the Indiana University South Bend campus opened in 1961. Fabricated of Indiana limestone and dedicated in 1962 as the South Bend-Mishawaka Center, President John F. Kennedy sent a congratulatory telegram that was included in IU President Herman B Wells’ remarks. The building included classrooms, laboratories, offices, an 800-seat auditorium, lounges, and the library. With the hope that it would “become one of the educational and cultural centers of Northern Indiana,” the facility demonstrated the university’s commitment to the region. Remaining the sole facility until 1966, it was renamed Northside Hall when a second building was opened. An addition, Northside West, was opened in 1972 to add space, including a large lecture hall. In 2015, the lecture hall was renovated, and became the Louise E. Addicott and Yatish J. Joshi Performance Hall.
