Dalton college breaks ground on science building

DALTON, Ga. (AP) - Dalton State College officials have broken ground on a new science building, which is expected to be completed before the summer of 2014 in the northwest Georgia city.

The Dalton Citizen reports (http://bit.ly/RRBiyL) that the state is paying $15 million for the 60,000-square-foot building. School officials say a $500,000 contribution from the John Willis Mashburn Charitable Trust will be used for the project.

The state Board of Regents included $2.1 million in its 2014 budget to furnish and equip the building. Design funds of $1.3 million were appropriated in 2010.

Sandra Stone, vice president for academic affairs at Dalton State, says the new building will include a coffee shop and large space for students to congregate.
