With less space in the Student Union available to reserve for student groups during upcoming renovations, Union officials said they are doing their best to accommodate all requests for meeting space.
Portions of the Union, such as the east wing and underground computer lab, have recently been closed down to begin the first phase of renovation, which will officially begin Sept. 10.
Renovation plans include installing a Wendy’s restaurant, adding more meeting rooms and bringing the entire east wing up to code.
“We don’t think there’s going to be any problems that we can’t solve,” said Tony Patterson, senior associate director for student life and activities.
Approval for a fee increase that would fund a second round of renovations was denied last spring in a referendum to the entire student body.
