The last beam was lowered into place on UC Merced's Student Activities and Athletic Center. Faculty, staff, students and community members were able to sign the beam on Thursday before it was added to the building.
Once completed this summer, the building will provide much-needed recreation space and meetings rooms for students.
The campus has several construction projects underway and another major one set to begin soon.
Near the entrance to campus, two new student housing buildings are under construction. Set to open in fall of 2013, they'll have 364 built-in beds and will be part of The Summits complex. Construction is scheduled to begin on Science and Engineering Building 2, which will add important laboratory space for innovative research and more classrooms. Also, a student services building will be built to provide space for staff members who help students in their academic career.
