Providence College is getting ready to embark on a huge new project.
At its Harvest Banquets this weekend, we'll see plans to build a huge new Student Life Centre. The project will cost $4.5 million and so far they've raised $2.9 million. So the goal is to try and raise the remainder through the Harvest Festival Banquets. President Gus Konkel says they need a centre like this because the current dining hall was built in the 1950's and is very inadequate. The new building will have a dining hall plus an aboriginal centre, a centre for international students plus mail boxes and a lounge.
