Jindal at NSU for ceremony

Posted:

NATCHITOCHES, La. (KALB News Channel  5)  – Northwestern State University held a dedication and grand opening for two buildings on the campus Wednesday.

Gov. Bobby Jindal and state and local officials were on hand to be a part of the ribbon cutting ceremony. The ceremony was held at 2 p.m.

 The Student Services Center and Caspari Hall are the newly-renovated buildings. The ceremony included remarks from guests and tours of the facilities.

"The Northwestern family is extremely proud to reopen the repurposed, refurbished historic Caspari Hall," said NSU President Dr. Randall J. Webb, whose office is housed on the second floor of the building. "I am especially honored that the office of the president is now located in the building named after the ‘Father of the Normal School.'"

Both buildings combined cost $12.1 million and were funded through $98.4 million in surplus funds from the 2007-08 budget year set aside by the governor and the state legislature. The money was specifically earmarked for construction projects at state colleges and universities and could not be used to compensate for budget shortfalls.
