Building construction has dramatically changed the face of the UA campus in recent years.

Grandest of all was the construction of the new Student Union Memorial Center, completed January 2003 at a cost of $60 million. At over 400,000 square feet, the new Student Union is one of the largest in the country.

The Student Union offers students and visitors numerous choices for dining and entertainment. Food outlets include Café Sonora, the Cactus Grill, 3 Cheeses and a Noodle, Cellar Restaurant and Lounge, Chick-fil-A and the On Deck Deli. [Read article]
