The Hattiesburg American reports WCU will build a chapel, a School of Business building, a College of Osteopathic Medicine wing and a gymnasium.

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.
