SALEM, Ohio (WKBN) – Nearly $1 million in state funding is headed to the Kent State University Salem campus for its new science wing.
The $985,000 will be used to build biology and chemistry labs, as well as classrooms and storage facilities. The first phase of the project opened in 2011 with a new state-of-the-art facility for its nursing and radiation programs.
The second floor science center is still being completed. Last year, the James and Coralie Centofanti Foundation donated $700,000 for the project.
Kent State University will pay for the architectural, administrative, and equipment costs of the science facility project.
