In 2019, construction crews broke ground to start the construction of the 70,000-square-foot Center for Science, Technology and Industry at the former West Campus, now Upper Campus.
While that is the biggest building project in recent years, it isn't the only one. Substantial renovation also went on at the former East Campus, which is now the Freshman Campus. Also, McCracken Field underwent a multi-phase project to update lighting, improve drainage and upgrade the athletic fields.
