MISSOULA, Mont. (AP) - The University of Montana expects to begin construction this spring on a new athletics academic center on campus.

The Missoulian reports (https://bit.ly/Kfki4o) plans call for moving the western entrance to the Adams Center to the west and building a three-story addition. The entrance will remain on the first level with the academic center on the second level. The basement will eventually include new locker rooms for visiting teams and performers.

The $2.5 million facility will be paid for with private donations and will provide the university’s 300 student-athletes with a convenient location for studying.

Assistant athletic director for internal operations Chuck Maes says the center will give UM a strong recruiting tool and send a message to athletes that academics matter.

The work is scheduled to be completed next year.
