WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI)—More than $2 million in changes are coming to the Brees Academic Performance Center at Purdue.
The board of trustees approved a renovation plan for the center's first floor.
The project will create a little more than 10,000 square feet of support space. That includes study rooms, tutoring space, a study hall and flexible classroom.
Part of the Newell Training Room will be maintained for volleyball, wrestling and other sports.
Construction should begin in July 2018 and be completed in 2019.
