MUN Student Union Breezeway Renovation

In the middle of the Chemistry and Physics building, there sits a courtyard. Albeit no longer accessible, the courtyard originally only had three sides which created a breezeway (an architectural feature that allows the passage of a breeze between structures). Memorial University’s Student Union (MUNSU) would hold barbecues and student events in that breezeway, and when the building structure later changed shape, the name went to the bar at the Thompson Student Centre and now to its current location on the first floor of Memorial's Smallwood (University) Centre.
