ASU MU Re-opens after fire

Posted: Sep 10, 2008 | 1 min 33 sec

The dust has settled, the paint is dry, the fence is down and all the floors are open. Just in time for the fall semester Arizona State University is ready to celebrate the re-opening of its renovated Memorial Union on the Tempe campus.

Originally built in 1954, the Memorial Union is the center of student life on the Tempe Campus. A fire in November 2007 shut down the Memorial Union temporarily. While the lower level and first floor food court were open within 60 days, the severely damaged second floor and third floor were closed for renovation.

The Arizona Board of Regents approved $53 million to repair and renovate the MU, with an anticipated $40 million coming from insurance reimbursements and $13 million paid from bond money for upgrades planned before the fire.
