In the 2013/2014 school year, San Diego State University students will have a brand new Aztec Student Union on campus. The new, state-of-the-art union will be located in the middle of the SDSU campus and will include a variety of facilities ranging from meeting rooms to a bowling and games center to the ARC express, a satellite fitness facility.
The new ARC Express will be on the top floor of the new student union and will serve 800+ participants a day. This will greatly benefit all Aztec Recreation Center members as it will decrease crowding and traffic in the ARC, while also providing a workout facility on the east side of campus.
Aztec Lanes, the new bowling and games center, will be just as modern and upscale as the ARC Express. Plans include a full-scale, 12-lane bowling center that will be equipped with multiple flat screen TVs and table games. The new, modern building will also have a café area with a variety of healthy meal-plan options for students, including a Shake Smart kiosk in Aztec Market.
This entire project on the SDSU campus is a testament to Associated Students’ continuing green efforts and commitment to sustainability. The Aztec Student Union will be the first LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Platinum-certified student union in California and the first LEED Platinum-certified building on a CSU campus!
