SDSU's spring semester gets underway with events scheduled at the new Aztec Student Union

$104M student union funded by student fees

SAN DIEGO - San Diego State University's spring semester gets underway Wednesday with a series of events scheduled at the new Aztec Student Union.
   
The 206,000-square-foot building replaces Aztec Center, which was demolished three years ago to make way for the project.
   
The $104 million student union will offer restaurants like Chipotle, Oggi's Pizza Express, Starbucks and The Habit; a bowling alley; a 300-seat theater, ballroom and meeting rooms; and student government offices. It was funded by student fees.
   
SDSU President Elliot Hirshman and Associated Students' President Josh Morse are scheduled to welcome students back to campus at an event at 9 a.m. in the building's Lee and Frank Goldberg Courtyard.

The first of what will be weekly concerts will begin at noon, and a block party called "Up All Night"
is set for 6 p.m.
   
The official ribbon-cutting is scheduled for March 7.
   
Cal State San Marcos, which opened the spring semester Tuesday, also opened a new student union.

The 89,000-square-foot, four-story building includes a 400-seat outdoor amphitheater, an activity center with a game lounge, six eateries, a 3,000-square-foot green roof with outdoor seating areas, and a 9,000-square-foot ballroom.
