New (2010) Ohio Union - Interior

I visited the Ohio State campus November 1, 2015, with Ruth Ann (her first visit) and two of my three brothers an their wives (Jim and Claudia, Ted and Beth), my first time on campus in more that 25 years; besides walking around the Oval, went to two areas just off the Oval: (1) Wexner Center & Mershon Auditorium at the NE corner and (2) Mirror Lake at the SW corner. At the end of the afternoon, we stopped at Ohio Stadium (much expanded from my years on campus). Larger trees blocking views of some buildings along the Oval were among the noticeable changes. 3rd iteration of Ohio Union was completed 2010, replacing the 1951 building I knew (taken down 2006 to make room for new one); 1st Student Union, 154 W 12th Ave, named Enarson Hall in 1986 for 9th OSU president Harold L Enarson, renamed again 2013, now Hale Hall & houses Black Cultural Center; it housed Student Health Service when I attended
