MSUB Unveils New Plans for Science Building

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS -

So far, hundreds of thousands of dollars have been pledged by donors to MSU Billings for the expansion and renovation of Yellowstone Hall, the campus science hall. But the school has a lot of ground to cover.

MSU Billings must raise $5 million in order to get $10 million set aside by state lawmakers for the project. Several people gathered on campus today to see renderings of the finished product for the very first time. A progress report was made public and the importance of the expansion was discussed.

"Student's these days are not used to just sitting in the classroom and learning. They also learn from each other. Providing these open spaces for them to interact, exchange ideas, to network -- the new science building will do that," said Dr. Tasneem Khaleel, the dean of MSU Billings' College of Arts and Sciences.

The current building is the home of the university's science and health professions classrooms and laboratories. MSU Billings must reach its fundraising goal before the next phase of the design process can happen.
