ALBANY,  GA (WALB) – Albany State University broke ground on two separate construction projects Friday morning that will be ready and open next Fall.

ASU first broke ground on the new residence halls that will add on-campus housing for more than 600 students. The halls will be located east of the ACAD building.

Then the ground breakers grabbed their shovels and headed across the street where the new student center will sit.

ASU's student President said she's thrilled to see the university growing at such a rapid pace.

"To see the change here and be a part of it is very exciting and I couldn't ask for more as president this year to be a part of this ceremony," said Ashley Fogle, ASU SGA President.

The new student center building will be more than twice the size of the existing student union, almost 83,000 square feet to be exact and will encompass the existing dining hall.

The facility will include two new food venues, a bookstore, a ballroom and much more.
