FDL County Continues Support Of UW FDL

Fond du Lac County Executive Al Buechel says student housing at the UW-Fond du Lac is something they have wanted for a long time. He says the County has made several major investments in the campus since 1967. He says they invested $5.2 million to build the original campus and they remodeled the University Center later for $12.9 million. He says they have invested a lot in education. UW Colleges and UW-Extension Chancellor Cathy Sandeen says the student housing represents another important partnership between the UW and the County.  She says this time they also partnered with the housing developer and operator of the student housing facility. She says it is the wave of the future where they have these partnerships in order to make opportunities available to the citizens of Wisconsin. A ribbon cutting was held for the new student housing this week. Students will be moving into the facility at the end of the month.
