One of the biggest parties UA has ever seen begins today.
And it's all in honor of a building.
Administrators will officially dedicate the largest student union in the nation without a hotel ¸ the new Student Union Memorial Center.
At 405,000 square feet and nearly 9.3 acres, it is double the size of the original student union.
It's not just a union, it's a small city, said Dan Adams, director of UA student unions.
"The word I hear constantly is, ╬Wow. Wow it's big. Wow it's beautiful.' This is what I like to call the ╬Wow' building," Adams said.
Although it's taken three years, 12 million pounds of steel, and over $60 million to construct the union, it's still not finished.
