More than 10,000 square feet on the first floor will become study rooms, tutoring space, a study hall and flexible classroom for student-athletes.

It will also include a space for the Vanguard Program, which helps students with learning disabilities.

“I am pleased the State Budget Committee gave its approval for both of these projects,” said State Rep. Sheila Klinker, who is a member of the House Ways and Means Committee, where the state budget originates. “The university has always been committed to the belief that athletes at Purdue are student-athletes. Academics are more important to the overall development of these men and women than their athletic training."
