NGSCU: Partnership Results in $110 Million Campus Transformation
November 12, 2012
North Georgia College and State University (NGCSU) recently completed a four-year, $110 million campus transformation culminating with the renovation of Gaillard Hall, a 166-bed historic cadet residence hall. In addition to Gaillard, other projects completed include the addition of 1,214 student beds, a 1,080-space parking deck, a new multi-use building that houses the university bookstore, retail and health center as well as a 1,000-seat dining hall.
“This $110 million partnership has been truly transformational for our university and secures its future for generations to come.”
Located in Dahlonega, Ga., NGCSU is the state’s second oldest university and is one of only six senior military colleges in the United States. Funding for the $110 million capital improvement initiative was provided through privately financed tax-exempt municipal bonds. RISE was selected as developer for the project in February 2009 through a nationally competitive process.
