VINCENNES, Ind. (WTHI)-Right in the middle of the Vincennes University’s campus lies the Curtis G. Shake learning resource center. It's a popular research and study place for college students like Zane Breeden.
"I usually come here if I’m trying to do homework or something and when the writings centers closed for lunch or something," said Breeden.
Shake Hall is also next in line for the university's renovation list. University architect Andrew Young says the facility may not be one of the oldest facilities, but it does require a lot of work.
"That's a complete renovation of the entire mechanical system. This building has been added to five or six different times so it’s kind of a hodgepodge of different kinds of construction, different ages of construction and we hope to renovate that," said Young.
One of the biggest changes will be coming to the building's library. Their goal is to transition the library more into a modern digital space. Moving some of their physical research to make space for a more interactive environment.
"But students in this day in age, they need more flexible space. More space they can call their own and use how they want to use it and we hope this library project does that for them," said Young.
The project can take up to two years once it begins but for these students just hope the school will continue to provide them with a rich learning environment.
"I think it's a great idea. I hope it stays quite like any other library pretty well but yea I think
It's a good idea," said Breeden.
Right now there isn’t a set cost for the project but the university is receiving eight million dollars from the state for it. The renovation project may begin as early as this summer.
