The University of Arkansas
Board of Trustees approved a request by UALR
for a $30 million bond issue to generate funds for two capital projects: the construction of an honors housing complex and an outdoor recreation center. UALR could probably use the space. According to a press release, the existing dorms have been full for the past three years and students have been placed on waiting lists. The news comes on the heels of last month's announcement of a $34 million bond issue to construct a Nanotechnology Sciences Center, along with other construction projects.
