UNIVERSITY PARK, Ill. (AP) - Governors State University will officially open its renovated science, health sciences and technology wing this week.
Officials say the 80,000-square-foot research and teaching space will provide students and faculty cutting-edge facilities in which to learn and work.
Democratic Gov. Pat Quinn will be on hand for the official opening Friday, along with state Senate Republican Leader Christine Radogno (ruh-DOHN’-yoh) of Lemont. Other state senators and state representatives will also attend.
GSU President Elaine Maimon says the $25.3 million renovation was supported by the state of Illinois.
The center will house programs and departments from two GSU colleges - the College of Arts and Sciences and the College of Health and Human Services.
The opening will culminate Governor State’s celebration of its becoming a four-year university.
