HOBBS, N.M. (AP) - A private, southeastern New Mexico Christian university has unveiled plans for a significant expansion.

The Hobbs News-Sun reports the University of the Southwest recently announced the $45 million expansion that will include a larger chapel, a new 94-bed dormitory, and a baseball/softball complex.

University of the Southwest president Quint Thurman says the expansion of facilities is called Vision 20/20.

Officials say funding for the expansion will come from donations from alumni, the general public, foundations and businesses.

They also expressed enthusiasm for a new $5 million chapel, which when it is built, will be a focal point for nearby travelers.

The on-campus population of students at USW is around 430.
