Work has begun on one of the campuses most notable icons, the Student Union tower. The tower is receiving a much-needed renovation, including structural work as well as beautification. Plans are for the project to be completed by early 2019. In the meantime, there will be a temporary construction platform surrounding the west porch for pedestrian protection.The west porch balcony and the second floor doors leading to the Student Union Ballroom will remain accessible. Seating space on the first floor of the west porch will also remain accessible during renovation.
The renovation process will be similar to that of the recent restoration of the Edmon Low Library bell tower with regard to scaffolding and construction netting. The Student Union tower will be restored to its original grandeur with no changes to its overall appearance.
We appreciate your patience as we continue to make improvements to further campus beautification.
