SEMO regents approve $58M renovation plan

November 1st, 2010 in News

CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo. (AP) - The Board of Regents at Southeast Missouri State University has approved a plan to borrow $58.2 million for campus projects.

The plan approved by the regents Friday would go toward a campuswide maintenance and renovation plan. The Southeast Missourian reports that how the university will pay for the project remains in question, but higher student fees could be a result.

The plan includes the sale of general education bonds for a $22.78 million upgrade of the campus' century-old Academic Hall and a nearly $18 million renovation of Magill Hall, the university's science building.

The proposal also calls for nearly $10 million in deferred maintenance projects and nearly $7 million in power plant upgrades.
