RICHLAND, Wash. – Officials from Washington State University Tri-Cities will break ground on the new student union building during a ceremony at 3:30 p.m. on Friday, May 6, south of the Consolidated Information Center building.

Community members are welcome to attend.

The WSU Board of Regents voted unanimously last month to approve the schematic design for the 6,250 square-feet, $5.73 million facility, which will include study, leisure and meeting spaces for students.
