Q. What is the Student Union? 

A. The Student Union is both a student-centered organization and a building.  It is the center for community and leadership on campus.  The FAU Davie Student Union provides an on-campus home for students, faculty, staff, and guests who seek cultural, social, business, educational, and recreational experiences in an environment committed to excellent service.
