The building includes The Market, where students can buy snacks and school supplies; a new computer lab and the new Veteran Success Center.

The second floor features lounge space where students can study or hang out with friends. (JORDAN KNOWLES / AGGIE)

A memorial wall to honor the Gold Star Aggies will be revealed on May 25 as part of the Memorial Day Ceremony. The wall will include interactive video screens for visitors to learn more about Aggies who died in combat.

The Games Area, located in the basement of the MU, includes a lounge area, TV screens and a 12 lane bowling alley. The new bowling alley has four less lanes in order to make room for billiards tables. A game of bowling costs $4. There are also six screens through which students can play video games for $2 per hour.

Students can bowl one game for $4. (JORDAN KNOWLES / AGGIE)

The MU grand opening event is scheduled for noon on May 18.
