LAFAYETTE, La. (AP) - The University of Louisiana at Lafayette's campus is on track for major upgrades, and the student body will vote next month on whether to help pay for the work in the school's master plan.
The Advertiser reports much of the plan calls for reducing vehicle traffic by expanding sidewalks and building new bike paths. The plan identifies three main areas of UL's campus for improvements -- the main academic campus, the university commons where research and athletic facilities are housed, and the old Our Lady of Lourdes hospital property, which UL officials hope to acquire.
Students across the campus will vote on the fee Oct. 8-9.
The fee would be $7.50 per credit hour, capped at 15 hours.
