East Union observes 20 years
By Lindsay Young
Staff Reporter
Emerging from a small area with
just a deli and a lounge, the Nebraska
East Union will celebrate the 20th an
niversary of its much larger and more
accessible building this week,
f In 1947, nine years after the open
ing of the Nebraska Union in 1938,
residents of East Campus received
their first union facility in the basement
of what is now the recreation center.
Daryl Swanson, Nebraska Unions
director, said that after several years
of constant tension, the East Campus
residents wep promised a union.
jJBut because of increased enroll
ment on the City Campus, Nebraska
Union was renovated and extended
twice before the Nebraska East Union
was built in 1977.
The Nebraska East Union features
a six-lane bowling alley, a cafeteria
used by Burr-Fedde residence hall resi
dents, a bank, home economics class
rooms and offices, a Student Involve
ment office, health center facilities and
a catering service for both unions.
Ray Koziol, assistant director for
opportunities in the Nebraska East
Union, said the union’s best feature
was its architecture.
Rich Caruso, coordinator of cam
pus programs, said events in the Ne
braska East Un|pn are-always success
ful and attract umber of stu
A 2 „
Events planned for the anniversary
will take students back to the union’s
inaugural year with prices set at what
they would have been in 1977.
Today, bowling will be featured at
50 cents a game with 25 cents for shoe
rentals. Pool will be played at $1.20.
On Wednesday, free cake will be
served outside the bakery. Whoever
finds the one piece of cake with an
edible prize will receive a free catered
dinner for two in the Nebraska East
Union. Other special food prices will
be offered through the week.
There will also be a daily drawing
for a free cafeteria lunch and a draw
ing on Friday for a four-person bowl
ing party.
