Student Body President Nate Spriggs announced April 11 the approval of the renovation to the K-State Student Union. With a total of 3,351 votes cast, 74.9 percent of those were in favor of the project. This surpasses the minimum 60 percent required and means the Student Governing Association will now work with Kansas State University to move forward with the building improvements.

Over the coming year, final plans will be made for the $25 million project. 

The initiative will expand the Union with new student areas, dining facilities and a new southwest entrance. Construction will begin during the fall 2014 semester and will be financed by a $20-per-semester increase in privilege fees that will remain in effect over the next 30 years.
