After two years of construction, the new College of Business will open on Thursday for MSU students and the public alike. The building will help open up study space for a rising student population while improving the college’s and overall University’s reputation in business and entrepreneurship.
Jabs Hall, the name of the new building, cost 18.5 million to complete. It will be home for (on average) around 1,250 business majors for Fall 2015.
MSU has been hard at work to expand and improve campus. Bozeman and MSU have been attracting more young students than they ever have before. In order to keep up, MSU has been hard at work on expanding and improving the campus. MSU is currently working on the new Engineering building, which it plans to be the new campus hub. Due to the new building wiping out a major parking area, MSU has also had to line up a new parking garage in the coming future.
Jabs Hall stands out from most of the other buildings on campus for its environmental efficiency—a winner with students, environmentalists and tax payers alike! It is the 2nd building to win the LEED “gold” certification due to its green and earth friendly features. The building will maintain its heat from 52 geothermal wells while cooling itself with night air. All of the lights are energy efficient and all the countertops in the building are made from recycled materials.
MSU continues to make efforts improving their reputation as a center for education in Montana. They have been hard at work improving their business, medical and engineering programs while expanding for the new students attracted by these changes. Things continue to look up for MSU and therefore Bozeman!
