Old Union Fences Come Down: What’s Next?

Posted by at 10:45PM

I walked around the outside of the new Old Union building this afternoon after the fences started coming down. Even though the sprinklers in the courtyard were obnoxiously at full blast, the sun was shining on the building and on the palm trees… and as I turned around to look out of the courtyard, through the arches, and onto the fountain in White Plaza, I realized, “I’ve been missing out on this view for four years.” For most of my Stanford career, Old Union held almost no meaning for me. Now, as I graduate, I am excited about all that it can be for the students who will still be here next year and for those who will just be arriving for the first time. A real student union!
It’s about time.
