A longstanding building at the Kent State Trumbull campus in Champion is getting a multi-million dollar overhaul.
Construction has begun on the at the Classroom/Administration building on the campus as it undergoes a $3.5 million renovation. The project will expand the lecture hall to accommodate 300 theater-style seats and a new stage with wheelchair access as well as new climate control equipment.
“Over the last eight consecutive semesters, we have had enrollment increases so things have been going really well here at the campus. As we have continued to increase our enrollment, we are putting more money back into facilities and structures and the lecture hall was next up on the list,” said Kent State marketing coordinator Robb King.
Because of the renovations, the campus bookstore, which is adjacent to the lecture hall, has temporarily relocated to Room 132 in the Technology Building.
The project is expected to take a year to complete.
