About the image:
During the Duke Forward campaign, Duke’s West Union underwent its first major transformation since it was built in 1931. West Union served as the principal student gathering and eating space for more than 50 years, until the opening of the Bryan Center in 1982. The $90 million renovation was funded primarily from an $80 million gift from The Duke Endowment, the largest single philanthropic gift to Duke in the university’s history. The new 112,000-square-foot renovation features 13 eateries by local community vendors, collaboration spaces and meeting rooms, a teaching kitchen, and The Commons upscale dining restaurant.
