KSU plans to spend $1B on 10-year makeover of campus
Kent State University trustees have approved a plan to spend more than $1 billion over the next 10 years on a campus makeover.
The Akron Beacon Journal reports the vote Wednesday on the university’s transformation plan will lead to new construction, building renovations, a campus gateway and the creation of bike and walking trails.
Trustees also approved a 6 percent tuition increase for freshman enrolling for fall semester that will keep the $10,612 tuition frozen over four years. There are 28,000 students enrolled.
Included in the $221 million first phase of the makeover will be construction of a new business college administration building and adjacent parking garage, and renovations to Kent State’s fashion school.
