HATTIESBURG — William Carey University intends to start construction this year on four new buildings on its Hattiesburg campus.
The Hattiesburg American reports WCU will build a chapel, a School of Business building, a College of Osteopathic Medicine wing and a gymnasium.
WCU president Tommy King says the school has paid for the $800,000 chapel and the $2-million medical school addition.
He says the school plans to break ground on the chapel in a week or two and the medical school by the end of May.
There will be a fundraising campaign for the $4-million School of Business. King says the building will break ground in early summer.
The new $12-million gymnasium will be financed through state bonds. King hopes to break ground in early fall.
