In late July, students arriving for their
summer classes were greeted with mas

once stood. As Fayetteville State Univer
sity prepares to construct its newest build
ing, drastic changes have come underway.
New construction projects include erecting a
new science and technology building, reno

the area around the Chestaut Library.
