Rally ’round the EMU

From the Director

emu-1924-220x275For many of us, the student union was the place to gather, eat, study, and create fond memories.

I am excited to report that construction is underway for a long overdue renovation—and you can help.

The EMU hasn’t changed much since the last major addition in 1973. Meanwhile, our student population has grown from about 16,000 to more than 24,000.

This $95 million project will add 80,000 square feet of new construction and renovate the rest while preserving the building’s historic features (the Fishbowl!).

Just as their counterparts did almost a century ago, today’s students are leading the effort. Student fees will pay for all but $5 million. We’re asking alumni to help cover this gap.

To learn more, contact Lisa Manotti, director of development, 541-346-5246 or lmanotti@uoregon.edu.
