Summer seems to be the time for universities to ramp up construction and this summer is no different. Universities across the country, including Ohio University and Montana State University, are investing hundreds of millions of dollars in major projects including new buildings, renovations, and utility work.
Montana State University is in the process of constructing a new College of Business building, renovating a dining hall, and planning a new residence hall. Ohio University is investing in classroom renovations, four new dormitories and steam-tunnel work. Although the congestion of construction causes frustration for students and faculty, the end result of these projects will create more space for classrooms and on-campus living and add long term value to campus facilities.
