Mount Allison gets $3-mil for student centre

The New Brunswick government announced Tuesday that it will be giving Mount Allison University three million dollars towards the construction of a student centre.

“I am pleased to announce an investment of more than $3 million towards Mount Allison’s new student centre,” Ed Doherty, Minister of Post-Secondary Education said. “This student centre will enhance the campus experience for present and future students of Mount Allison by providing a single, modern facility to house a variety of activities and services.”

The contributions that the Province has made to Mount Allison are critical to helping us develop our new student centre, which will become the new heart of our campus,” says Mount Allison President and Vice-Chancellor Dr. Robert Campbell. “This initiative allows us to continue to offer students one of the best undergraduate educations in the country.”

The student centre will open in September 2008.
