Renovation of the half-century-old Case-Hill residence hall is delivering more student-friendly comfort, features and space. The $12 million project, completed in August, returned 326 beds to service, ahead of schedule and under budget. Among the many updates are larger, more private bathrooms and air-handling equipment that improved air quality and control of room temperatures. Get more information at http://scsu.mn/TfKm1l.
The Integrated Science and Engineering Laboratory Facility (ISELF) is enclosed and on track for use in August 2013.
“As we move toward completion of our $45 million Integrated Science and Engineering Laboratory Facility, it will be important to equip its new classrooms and labs with tools that will help prepare students and to transform St. Cloud State into the Minnesota leader in science education and science business collaboration,” President Earl H. Potter III said.
St. Cloud State received $120,000 in state funds in September for an X-ray diffractometer valued at $365,198 that will allow students and faculty in undergraduate and graduate programs to gain a deeper and more practical understanding of X-ray diffraction techniques. The University will raise $140,000 in matching contributions for the remainder of the cost and receive $105,000 in vendor discounts.
