Aztec Student Union

Aztec Student Union

Construction has been going on for just over a month now. We walk by it everyday and it always seems the same. However, some exciting steps are about to be taken that will soon be able to visually see. That’s right, the actually building of the building is about to begin! The first of the concrete is currently being placed in the basement areas. This semester you can expect to see the laying of foundation and the steel being placed.
