The evolution of Student Unions at universities and colleges has transformed campuses across the country by providing students the opportunity to gather, study, socialize and exchange ideas to enhance their overall college experience. This project will provide new space and renovate existing space for the FSU Oglesby Student Union to create a social and academic collaborate space for the students.
The existing facility consists of six connected buildings constructed at different times starting in 1940, nearly 80 years ago. Due to their age, condition and functionality, the entire complex will be upgraded and improved to modernize the existing Student Union. New meeting spaces, recreation/entertainment, banquet, lounge, offices, and administrative spaces will be constructed. Food service and retail magnet spaces will also be incorporated. Replacement of student government spaces, student organization spaces, and collaborative lounge spaces are anticipated.
The Project will promote the renewal of an active campus hub by providing a state of the art space for student use, along with supporting services to encourage increased relational and collaborative use of the Union as the heart of the student events.
