CUB Dedication and Ribbon-cuttting Ceremony
January 17, 2019
The official dedication and ribbon-cutting ceremony for the renovation of the Carlton Union Building will be on Friday, January 18, 2019. Come to the front steps of the CUB at noon to join the celebration.
After the ceremony, there will be an op[en house and tours of the new building. The ribbon-cutting ceremony marks the completion of a years-long renovation of the CUB, first built in 1957. The $30 million dollar reconstruction added over 30,000 square feet to the previous 52,000 square feet of the building, enlarging the Commons dining hall, the Bookstore, coffee shop and spaces for students and student organizations.
The renovation has come in phases. The Commons dining hall expansion was completed in time for classes this past fall 2018 semester; besides added space, new additions included more food options such as a meal station which avoids the top eight allergens. The most recent completion, the coffee shop, was opened in January 2019 in time for the spring semester.
