The floors are covered in sawdust, the doors are made from spray-painted planks, and a few of the walls are still exposed to summer showers.

On Monday afternoon, about 170 crew members performed everything from basic plumbing to the installation of a glass wall system.

Although it is still difficult to imagine the University of Louisiana at Lafayette’s new Student Union as a lively building filled with students, professors and alumni, one thing is clear.

This isn’t your grandma’s student union.
