UA video touts benefits of $1 billion in construction investments

It’s no secret that the University of Arkansas’ Fayetteville campus has changed dramatically in recent years, thanks to a series of major construction projects.

From the expansion and renovation of Vol Walker and Ozark halls to the new Hillside Auditorium and the upcoming Founders Hall, the school has finished or will soon complete over $1 billion in facilities enhancements and new construction.

In fact, Chancellor G. David Gearhart said the UA has built new or renovated almost all of its facilities on campus in the last 15 years.

UA officials this week released a brief video as part of the new Arkansas Short Takes series that discusses the ways students and faculty are benefiting from the unprecedented investments. Watch the video above or head over to
