Purdue Memorial Union Construction started June 13, 1922.
Purdue Memorial Union Opened in 1924 as a memorial to the Purdue students who had fought in World War I.
Today it has become one of the most popular spots on campus.
It has a bowling alley, arcade, pool, amazon & ups stores, atms, and money different places to get food.
It also holds big ballrooms for many events. There is plenty of lounge space, and it even has a hotel for visitors.
In the early days of the twentieth century, the Purdue community began to see the need for a place where all University life could center and a place to receive alumni and campus visitors. Students had been meeting in a room above Southworth's Bookstore in the Village. Similar institutions had already built union buildings, or were at least in the process of building them.
