This past year, Tech has broken ground on two major projects: the new student recreation center and the lab science building. These two projects are the cornerstones of a level of construction the university hasn’t experienced since the 1960s.
Along with these new buildings, multiple campus buildings are being renovated, including the Roaden University Center, Bartoo and Kittrell halls, and the Jere Whitson Building.
