A number of facilities and infrastructure items on the campuses of Southern Illinois University Edwardsville will see renovations in the coming months following action by the SIU Board of Trustees last week. Board members approved budgets to remodel the student lab in the School of Dental Medicine on the Alton campus and the resurfacing of Circle Drive on the Edwardsville campus.

SIUE Executive Director of Marketing and Communications, Doug McIlhagga says the board also voted to move forward with plans to renovate Founders and Alumni halls on the Edwardsville campus.

McIlhagga says both buildings are more than 40 years old and need to have electrical, plumbing and other mechanical systems brought inline with current health and life safety standards. The cost of developing this plan will be covered from the facilities fee.
