Hundreds attend groundbreaking ceremony for new Fresno State student union, including couple who donated $10 million

Hundreds of people gathered at Fresno State on Thursday to celebrate the groundbreaking of a large new facility designed to serve students. This ceremony marked a monumental moment for the university as it builds a new 84,000 square foot student union. Student Body President Omar Hernandez says, “The current union was built for a campus population of 10,000 students. Fresno State’s current population is one of 25,000 bold students.” The new facility is named after Lynda and Stewart Resnick. They are the founders of The Wonderful Company, which is known for many popular products, including Pom Wonderful juice and pistachios. The couple donated $10 million toward the design, construction, operation and maintenance of the new building.
