North Dakota State University has the OK to build an addition to Sudro Hall with a price tag up to $28 million to allow for much-needed expansion of its nursing program.
The State Board of Education voted unanimously Wednesday, March 28, to grant NDSU permission to go ahead with the project, which will be entirely paid for by private donations. So far, $22 million has been raised, but the building can be trimmed if fundraising falls short of the goal.
As planned, the six-story, 74,000-square-foot addition will connect to Sudro Hall’s northeast corner, south of Residence Dining Center. When the project was first announced a year ago, the addition was envisioned as a 93,000-square-foot expansion. At that time, $20 million had been raised.
