State Senator Troy Balderson (R-Zanesville) today announced state funding for facility improvements at Ohio University-Lancaster and Zane State College.

The colleges received final approval for the renovation projects from the Ohio Controlling Board on Monday. 

“Ohio colleges play a significant role in the future of Ohio’s skilled workforce,” said Balderson. “It is important that students have the opportunity to learn in a healthy, updated environment where they can make the most of their college education.”

Ohio University plans to begin improvements to Herrold Hall which will house its nursing program. 

The program is currently located in two different buildings but this project will allow the university to bring all nursing programming and services into one centralized location.

Zane State College plans to replace outdated, inefficient doors to College Hall. The new doors are expected to reduce energy costs and improve the building's appearance.
