Ferguson Center History

Did you know the student union was previously housed in Reese Phifer, the current communications building? In 1972, the area to the north of Woods Hall might’ve looked a bit like it does now, with construction underway on the Ferguson Student Center, the new student union.

Incidentally, the Ferg was supposed to be built exactly where Woods Hall is — student intervention saved that old building from being torn down to make way for the new student center.
