ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Parts of the Albany State University campus will soon get a makeover.

Wednesday, the Board of Regents approved funding for major renovations and repairs to campuses.

ASU will get more than $396,000 dollars. The money will help make the campus more energy-efficient with new windows and water meters. They'll also improve some lighting on campus. School leaders are thankful for the funding since budgets are so tight statewide.

"They have two budgets, the operating budget and we know they cut the operating budget. But they still have maintained the capital budget which is a smart thing. The building is going to deteriorate. You're still going to have to do maintenance so the state has committed to keeping some money for maintenance projects," said Albany State University Vice-President of Fiscal Affairs Larry Wakefield.

The school will also use some of the money to improve the camera security surveillance system.
