Sarazen Student Union Renovation

Siena’s new home for student life.

Bricks_greyThis spring, the Sarazen Student Union will be renovated into an exciting student-centered environment with a new lounge open 24 hours a day.

As our thank you for supporting the new student lounge, for a limited time we are offering donors the opportunity to engrave a personal commemorative brick to be permanently displayed on a wall in the McMahon Atrium outside of the new student lounge. This will be the only time commemorative bricks will be available for this renovation, as orders cannot be taken after May 31, 2014.
