2009 Renovation work starts on the Student Union

Extensive renovation on the OSU Student Union began in the fall of 2009, requiring that many of its major services be moved to a temporary building on the lawn east of the Classroom Building. The major services provided in the expansive aluminum building, known as "Utoo" included the bookstore, campus post office, a food court and a student store. Student activities were hosted under a large tent that was pitched nearby.
