Atwood Renovation Gets ‘No’ Vote from SCSU Students

Steven Wright

ST. CLOUD – A plan to renovate the Atwood Memorial Center has been voted down. The student government at St. Cloud State University announced the results Thursday night on a vote for a $15 million renovation of the university’s student union.

729 (42%) voted “Yes” and 943 (55%) voted “No” on a referendum question that would increase student tuition by $4.20 per credit, for up to 12 credits per semester, to fund a major renovation of the campus’ Atwood Memorial Center.
The renovation would have included the construction of a large, glass-enclosed gathering space, a 300-seat multi-use theater and a reception area south of the Ballroom.
Director of Atwood, Margaret Vos spoke to the student government Thursday saying, “We won’t ever stop planning for the future of Atwood.”
Last year a $47 million expansion plan also failed to pass a student vote.
