About the VRC/SAC Project

The new VRC will be built in front of the current Student Activities Center and connected to the existing building, which will be renovated. The new SAC will also house the International Student Program. In planning sessions with constituent groups, veterans voiced their desire for glass paneling that would not impede their view of their surroundings. The new VRC will include a Veterans Memorial Plaza and Tribute Garden. The garden will feature the U.S. flag, flags of the five military branches, and POW flag.
