ASU officials hope future fine arts center will attract new students

ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

In just a few weeks, Albany State will break ground on a big project, that's been in the making for some time now.

ASU's new Fine Arts Center will feature classrooms, offices, rehearsal space, and a 100 seat theater.
Last fall, before the board of regents approved the merger, Albany State announced the deactivation of several programs including Art, Music and Theatre.
President Dr. Art Dunning says since then, they have formed a committee to look at ways to attract more students interested in those disciplines, and hopes this new center will be a big draw.

“This should be a very deep attraction for students who are interested in these disciplines, and we are looking forward to growing and developing these programs, with a larger number of students and we will also be able to recruit students who haven't looked at us in the past," says Dr. Art Dunning, President of Albany State University.

He also clarified that students currently interested in Music, Theatre, and Art can major in those areas.

A groundbreaking ceremony is planned for April the 12th.
