Happy birthday to you, MU


The Memorial Union is celebrating its 85th birthday, and you're invited to the family-friendly birthday bash. Come to the MU Sun Room from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. on Monday, Sept. 23, for free chili, cheese soup and birthday cake. Additional events will be planned throughout the year.

The MU opened in 1928 (pictured in photo) as a memorial to those who lost their lives in World War I. Since then, 11 additions have gone up on all sides of the original structure. The most recent, on the south side, opened in 2008. Submitted photo.
