UB’s development partner, Brailsford & Dunlavey, came to the Student Union Wednesday to ask passing students what they would like to see in a future SU. This allowed not only Student Association members and faculty to give their input. We need more of this.
The Student Union is undergoing a transformation that may include new lounge spaces and outdoor areas after this semester. The building’s future design was up for debate Wednesday in the SU lobby, as students gave feedback to an outside development advisory firm. Representatives from Brailsford & Dunlavey, who are tasked with the Student Union Master Plan, stood by the main entrance with posters set up to showcase their ideas. The master plan will dictate students’ future use of SU and South Campus’ Harriman Hall.
As I walked through the Student Union on a weekday, I noticed a colorful flyer posted on one of the bulletin boards. The small piece of paper most likely would never have caught my attention had it not displayed the rainbow flag, a symbol for LGBTQ pride around the world.
