Governor to Sign Bill Funding New Building at WSU Davis Campus

LAYTON, Utah -- Nearly 150 community members, faculty, staff and students joined Gov. Gary Herbert and area legislators as the governor signed House Bill 4 and Senate Bill 5, which authorize the issuance of general obligation and revenue bonds to provide funding for a new classroom building at Weber State University Davis.

The event took place on March 30 at the main building of WSU Davis campus in Layton, Utah.

Plans are to build a 120,146-square-foot building that will primarily include classrooms and laboratories to expand offerings for high-demand programs at WSU Davis. Space will also be provided for student support needs, food services, and the Northern Utah Academy for Math, Engineering, and Science (NUAMES).
