I just had lunch here at the new student union today. Even though I had seen slide shows and other pictures from inside the facility, and watched it being built, I was still really impressed. It is a huge building relative to most of the rest of campus, but it is not out of place at all. The décor on the inside is very tasteful. The food court was a bit crowded, as you would probably expect for a new facility like this one on the first day of classes, but my colleague and I really didn’t have to wait very long to place our orders and get our food. We both opted for Popeye’s chicken, which is a bit of guilty pleasure, but it sure did hit the spot. There are also plenty of fresh, healthy options, including a salad bar. It was also easy to finding seating as there was plenty of it. I was only there for a working lunch and the first day of the semester is always busy, so I didn’t have time to wander around, but I’ve heard great things about the bookstore too, and plan to visit as soon as I can. I think it is great that the MTSU community has a student union that we can all be proud of.
