My Campus, Our Future

The PSU administration is calling on students to invest – through a new student activities fee – in a substantial upgrade of campus facilities including the Student Center. Student participation in funding these projects would not only improve campus life, but would demonstrate the sense of community and long-term vision that attracts alumni and outside donors. Check out details at My Campus, Our Future

Students enrolled for the Spring 2012 semester  will have the opportunity to vote on an advisory referendum on the phased implementation of a new student fee to support the renovation and expansion of the Overman Student Center, the construction of a new Fine and Performing Arts Center, and the construction of a new Indoor Event Center.
Voting will be available from noon on Wednesday, March 7 through noon on Wednesday, March 14 and will be conducted on-line.
Please note: Students will be required to log into GUS before starting the ballot.
