Add Your Mark to the HUB Expansion Next Week

The HUB expansion project will soon be filled with the “John Hancocks” of students who wish to become a permanent part of Penn State history.

Students will have the opportunity to sign the final two steel beams for the first-phase of the project on the first floor of the HUB from 10:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. on Tuesday, April 29 and Wednesday, April 30. HUB staff will also be on hand both days between 11:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. to answer questions about the project with free cake provided for attendees.

The “topping out” ceremony will mark the end of the first-phase of the steel installation for the project, with the two steel beams being placed in mid-May for a new meeting room near Alumni Hall. The project will ultimately include additional seating in the building along with a renovated bookstore, a new THON merchandise store, and added restaurant options for students.

Even with the final steel beams just now being placed for the expansion, the project is still expected be completed in May 2015. Signing the beams might just be the next best thing for juniors and seniors who otherwise won’t be able to reap the benefits of the construction.
