U of I Students Vote "Yes" to Assembly Hall Renovations

Posted:

CHAMPAIGN - Students at the University of Illinois will be forking out more to help upgrade Assembly Hall.

Students voted in favor of paying a $50.00 annual fee last week. 54 percent voted in favor of the upgrade.

The total price tag on the renovation project is an estimated $160,000,000.

The $25.00 per semester fee would take effect in fall 2014. Bonds were also sold to pay for part of the project. The student fees would pay for approximately 17 percent of the renovation cost over the 30 year life of the bonds.
