Many academic buildings on the WSU campus are in need of repair or renovation. A planned student referendum is to provide a margin of excellence in our classrooms, laboratories, library and student service facilities. Students in every college will benefit through the proposed individual projects, and the entire student body will benefit from the renovation of Ablah Library and the creation of a central student services center in Clinton Hall. Part of the long-term value of a student's degree is tied to the university's overall reputation. New or upgraded facilities, along with increasing quality of instruction and research, all contribute to the success of our alumni.
