The Memorial Union Building on the Oregon State University Campus
I spend about six hours a week in this building, particularly in a large room called 'The Lounge'. In between classes I hang out here and study, eat lunch, stare out the windows, or snooze on the couches or chairs. Hanging out in The Lounge is one of the best parts of being on campus for me. When I was working full time and taking online classes I would dream about the day when I could be on campus and spend time in this room. It's old, it's worn, and it feels like a second home. In addition, the MU holds the bookstore, where I like to browse, and some pretty good restaurants.
Dedicated on June 1, 1929, the building was built for "the service and inspiration of the living and the memory of our immortal dead." The construction of the MU was funded through student and alumni donations, and was the first student union in the state.
This is the main rotunda in the MU.
Here are some views of The Lounge.My favorite spot...Me in my favorite spot...A flag from every country hangs in the foyer.
Thanks for being so cool, MU.
