"It opens up a lot of growth. We're just on the cusp of offering our first graduate program, so we have to be able to feed those folks who want to be on campus, whether they're on campus as residents, or just visitors, or on campus as a commuter student," said RSU President Larry Rice.

Private donations will pay half of the building's $5 million price tag.
