MERIDIAN, Miss. (AP) - Mississippi State University officials say renovations of the old Kress Building should be finished by January in time for the spring semester.

MSU President Mark Keenum tells The Meridian Star (http://bit.ly/1cGQCeH ) the building will be renamed the Alfred Rosenbaum Building.

The Rosenbaum Building will house MSU-Meridian’s new Kinesiology School, which will add to the university’s downtown presence. MSU-Meridian’s downtown campus includes the Riley Center and the Newberry Building, which houses the university’s School of Business.

The renovation is part of an $11 million project Mississippi State has undertaken to expand its presence in Meridian. Keenum says the new Rosenbaum Building will also house a new library.

Keenum also says the Rosenbaum Building will be big enough to expand other programs that MSU offers.

The old Kress Building was constructed in 1905.
