Vision for the Future
TSU to invest millions in campus improvements
In addition to the Tri-State University`s new University Center and Center for Online Technology, slated to be open in fall of 2007, TSU is also announcing additional projects that will forever change the face of the University. A multi-purpose stadium and new student apartments, replacing dormitory-style residence halls, will be constructed.
In addition, interior renovation will be completed on C. W. Sponsel Administrative Center. Integrated in these plans will be new infrastructure and technology that includes an expanded fiber optic network, a completely wireless environment, Shared Multimedia Access to Resources for Teaching (SMART) classrooms, and a laptop tablet implementation
program. Plans are also in progress to demolish Stewart Hall, TSU's largest dormitory, and to build in its place a six-court, state-of-the-art tennis pavilion in the summer of 2008. These undertakings, along with future projects, were recently approved by the TSU Board of Trustees in conjunction with the success of the Vision for the Future capital
“The University Center project is the largest single project in the history of TSU,” noted Earl D. Brooks II, Ph.D., President of TSU. “However, these added projects will be monumental in the way that TSU enters the future. These steps, along with our excellent faculty and staff, will ensure that we provide a first-class learning environment
for our students and provide the necessary resources for a quality educational experience.”
These projects, combined with various other construction and renovation undertakings under Brooks’ tenure, mark the largest campus-wide improvement project in the history of TSU.
