  • My Fiction Icks
    By Jay Grummel When you read as much as I do you start to notice common things in fiction that make you annoyed, upset  or even want to put down the book completely. I have a bad habit of not giving books much of a chance when they use some of these personal ‘icks’. However, […]
  • Poetry for Fall

Board of Trustees meets at Firelands campus

Students may have to travel a little further than the Union if they want to attend the University Board of Trustees meeting today.

The meeting will be hosted in the Cedar Point Center at the Firelands Campus in Huron, Ohio.

On the docket for the board to discuss are increases in residence hall room rates and meal plan rates.

The board will also consider a resolution to renovate the first floor of Founders Hall. The renovations are estimated to cost $800,000 and will be done so the Honors Program can be relocated to Founders from Harshman.

“[T]he improved space will provide the Honors Program an opportunity to improve BGSU’s ability to recruit and attract high-performing, academically qualified students,” according to the resolution.

The renovations will involve the creation of a classroom, eight offices, two conference rooms and more, according to the resolution.

This summer, Olscamp Hall may be renovated as well. There is a resolution up for approval at the meeting which will detail the renovations. The potential renovations are estimated to cost $4,800,000 and will be a prototype of flexible teaching and learning spaces on the second floor, according to the resolution.

The University Board of Trustees meets at Firelands fairly regularly, said Dave Kielmeyer, University spokesperson.

“I think it’s just a chance for the trustees to stay acquainted with the Firelands campus,” Kielmeyer said.
