From the SUB to a Hub
For many years, a former World War II mess hall known as the SUB (Student Union Building) served as the first campus gathering place. It housed a snack bar at one end, the Milli-den lounge at the other, and students could buy a soft drink and a candy bar for a dime. The beloved but dilapidated SUB was ceremoniously burned as part of dedication festivities for a new university center during Homecoming 1960.
The new center became a central hub for thousands of students throughout the '60s and '70s, but eventually it also grew obsolete and was replaced with Richards Treat University Center.
