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.
Update | Oct. 29, 2018
The Student Union tower project is moving quickly. The scaffolding, which was put in place in Oct. 2017, has been removed. Although the scaffolding is gone, there will continue to be construction on the roof at the base of the tower.
Below are pictures from the renovation. On the left is the new railing section, and on the right are decorative stars added to the access hatch. Everything new is a replica of what was previously in place, so the tower will not look changed after the renovation is finished. It should be noted the bronze color will oxidize into the dark green color the tower is known for.
