Valdosta - A South Georgia college is one step closer to getting a new, multi-million dollar educational facility.

Valdosta State University received a $392,000.00 grant from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. The money will help build a new Health Sciences Building here on a vacant lot across from South Georgia Medical Center.

Students majoring in nursing, communication disorders, counseling, and any other health occupation will all be brought together under one roof.

"We call it a living learning environment," said V.S.U. President Ronald Zaccari. "Students will live in our residence halls, study in our new healthcare facility and intern directly across the street."

This grant will provide for the architectural planning phase of the building. V.S.U. is relying on state funding to pay for the construction costs.
