To the campus community:  There are two construction projects taking place this summer in the McFarland Student Union.  We are doing our best so that inconveniences to our students, MSU residents and guests will be as minimal as possible. However, please note that there will be times where you may be inconvenienced either with the parking lots being sectioned off for dumpsters or a crane needed for sections of the project, etc.  We are all working together to minimize inconveniences when possible. 


We ask for your patience and understanding while the University makes improvements for the benefit of our students and community. If you should have any questions, please feel free to contact myself, a member of the MSU team and we will do our best to assist you.

Trisha Scarcia-King, director, McFarland Student Union
