Photo of the Day: U of M McNamara Alumni Center
The University of Minnesota's McNamara Alumni Center is a strange piece of architecture that reminds us of the Aggro Crag from Nickelodeon's underage gladiator hit, GUTS.
Well, it's so popular with the graduates that they have plans (and the cash) to add an addition to the structure. The University Board of Regents approved plans for a $9.7 million addition earlier this month.
Construction is scheduled to be completed by next September, in time for the opening of TCF Bank Stadium. The proximity of the new football stadium was another factor in expansion.
