ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

A big project at Albany State University is one step closer to completion. 

The university hosted a "topping out" ceremony for their Fine Arts Center. 

University leaders as well as Senator Freddie Powell Sims spoke about their excitement for the center. 

Once complete, it will have various studios and classrooms designed for art and music. 

It will also be home to a performance space that can seat up to 110 people. 

"It's a state of the art fine arts facility, and it's going to bring this community together, because it's going to be a community facility as well; not just to use here on campus. So it's a structure that is sort of a binding of the university to the community," said ASU President Arthur Dunning.

The center is on track to be completed in June. 

Students will be able to take classes in the Fall of 2017.
