JACKSON, Tenn. – July 21, 2008 – One of the most recognizable symbols of Union University – Miller Tower – will have a different look for the next several weeks.
The cupola on top of the tower was removed July 16, along with three of the tower’s four clock faces. They were taken by truck to Campbellsville, Ky., to repair damage caused to the tower by the Feb. 5 tornado that struck Union’s campus. All told, the tornado did an estimated $40 million in damage to the campus.
Repairs are expected to take about six weeks.
Due to inclement weather, all Union campuses will be closed on Thursday, March 5, with all day classes canceled.
A decision on evening classes at Jackson and Germantown will be made by noon on Thursday. Hendersonville evening classes are canceled.
The wellness center will open at 10 a.m. and close at 8 p.m., and the aquatic center will be open from 1-3 p.m.
