WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - Planners at Purdue University are trying to figure out what campus could look like in another 50 years.
The public was invited to provide feedback for a new campus master plan Wednesday night.
The master plan will help guide the next 10-15 years of development on campus, leading up to a 50-year vision.
Planning officials said they hope to focus on connectivity throughout campus, as well as create collaboration spaces.
News 18 talked to a computer science student who is concerned about space in the department. He hopes the master plan can eventually reflect that need.
"It's pretty easy to see that computers aren't going away, so the demand for computer science has been growing ever since and I don't think it's going to slow down any time soon," said Ian Zanger. "So, the fact that we're now at capacity and are already having capacity issues is pretty concerning."
The master plan should be complete by the end of summer. The Board of Trustees will then have to approve it.
