Missouri State University is slated to dedicate its Ann Kampeter Health Sciences Hall after investing millions of dollars in renovations.
A ceremony is scheduled Sept. 6 to unveil the renovated academic building at Cherry Street and Kimbrough Avenue, according to a news release. The building is home to the McQueary College of Health and Human Services.
“The building renovations are significant to both current and prospective students,” said Mark Smith, dean of the McQueary College, in the release. “The building’s modernization demonstrates that the environment in which people work, learn and study is important to MSU."
The renovations had a total project cost of $10 million, said Brent Dunn, vice president of university advancement and executive director of the MSU Foundation. They were supported by a seven-figure donation from philanthropist and former student Ann Kampeter, securing naming rights for the building, according to past reporting.
The renovated Kampeter Hall includes dedicated student study spaces, a centralized McQueary College Student Success and Advisement Center, two upgraded classrooms, upgrades to all common spaces and heating and cooling system upgrades, according to the release.
Urban Studios LLC, a natural light photography studio and pop-up event space, opened; the Missouri State University Foundation became the new owner of event venue The Old Glass Place; and Polk County’s dining scene expanded with the opening of Flat Creek.
