Renovations underway at MSSU as part of its master plan

Updated:

Missouri Southern State University outlines plans for future fix-ups on campus.

2012 marks its 75th anniversary and officials are outlining dreams for the next 25 that could top $150 million.

The new atrium at Hearne's Hall is a sign of things to come at MSSU.  A large lion logo on a terrazzo floor and etched glass on student services offices.

Recent remodeling of Hearne's Hall modernized students services like admissions and financial aid to give a more impressive look to potential students and their parents.

Reynold's Hall, a sciences building, would be a top priority of the university's new master plan of improvements.

Architects created a video of design concepts that include a new academic building down the line, finishing the athletic complex, revamping the oval with more walkways, adding more dormitories and adding lots of landscaping, especially at the front entrance.

"It's more of a warming effect to students, make them feel welcome," says Rob Yust, the MSSU Vice President of Business Affairs.

The exact cost of the master plan has not been tabulated.

School officials tell us they will work on a few items every year, but the master plan will be used for fundraising for bigger projects that require architects and contractors.
