Campus Rewind: Ferguson Student Center

This entry was posted in Photographs, UA History and tagged , . Bookmark the permalink.

Earlier this week, we looked at the old student union, in the building we now know as Reese Phifer Hall. In 1972, the area to the north of Woods Hall might’ve looked a bit like it does now, with construction underway on the Ferguson Student Center, the new student union.

Incidentally, the Ferg was supposed to be built exactly where Woods Hall is — student intervention saved that old building from being torn down to make way for the new student center.
