WKU Approves Normal Drive Purchase

Western Kentucky University’s Board of Regents approves the purchase of three properties for the site of a new university College of Education and Behavioral Science.

WKU will use state bonds to purchase 1666, 1670 and 1680 Normal Drive. The board also approved the area bound by Normal Drive, Regents Avenue and Mimosa Alley.

The building will replace Tate Page Hall which has a number of ventilation problems. The $35 million replacement project was approved by the 2006 Kentucky General Assembly.
