Lewisville Contractor to Build ASU’s Centennial Village
Regents of the Texas State University System Friday appointed NE Construction, Ltd., of Lewisville to build Centennial Village, a new 500-bed residence hall, on the northwest corner of the Angelo State University campus.
The board approved the contractor for the $19.6 million residence hall during a meeting which concluded Friday on the campus of Texas State University-San Marcos.
Centennial Village will be built on the site formerly occupied by the Rosemont Apartments. It is scheduled for occupancy in the fall of 2007. The residence hall is named for the university’s Centennial Master Plan 2028, which is targeted to the year of the 100th anniversary of the institution’s founding.
In other business, the regents changed course fees for 11 courses and discontinued the university’s graduation fee. Additionally, the board made 41 changes in various courses in the curriculum.
Regents authorized $1.49 million in budget adjustments for the university, approved a request to solicit bids for custodial services for 2006-07 and provided acknowledgements for $155,000 in external gifts. Additionally, they approved routine appointments and promotions for the upcoming academic year.
The TSUS board serves as the governing body for ASU and the other eight institutions making up the system. Theother institutions are Lamar University, Lamar Institute of Technology, Lamar State College-Orange, Lamar State College-Port Arthur, Sam Houston State University, Sul Ross State University, Sul Ross State University-Rio Grande College and Texas State University-San Marcos.
