Memorial Union as seen across Lake Laverne.

Talks of a memorial for ISU students lost in World War I arose after the war ended. The idea of creating a living memorial, something that could be a service to ISU, caught on. Initial construction for the Memorial Union (MU) was completed in 1929. The original design included a solemn memorial hall which included the names of the dead WWI veterans engraved in marble. Over the years, the names of WWII, Korean and Vietnam war veterans were added to the memorial. Symbolically, the hall was built directly over a library (the Browsing Library) and a small chapel, the symbol being that no country would ever send its young men to die in a war for a noble cause without a solid foundation on both education (the library) and religion (the chapel). The Memorial Union was set up as a corporation independent from the University to ensure its preservation for the interests of students, faculty and alumni and to avoid becoming merely an extended arm of university politics. Renovations and additions have continued through the years to include: elevators, bowling lanes, a parking ramp, a book store, and additional wings. In 2003, the corporation overseeing the MU was dissolved and the MU became a part of ISU.
