The new three-story Student Union Building on Middle Tennessee State University’s campus in Murfreesboro, Tennessee, fulfilled a great need and years of anticipation for the school. This 198,000 square foot facility functions as a gathering space for 26,000 students to enhance campus life and advance the University's educational mission. Street Dixon Rick was honored to be the designer for the interior spaces of this $56 million building.
