Kansas State Vet Medicine College receives large donation
MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) — Kansas State’s College of Veterinary Medicine has received a $2.2 million donation from Hill’s Pet Nutrition.
The $2.2 million gift is the largest corporate donation in history for the college.
The university says the money will be used to renovate the college’s Mosier Hall to add about 16,000 square feet of clinical training, classroom teaching and research spaces. A 5,000-square-foot research suite will be added to the second floor of Moser Hall. The renovation also includes removing Frick Auditorium and creating the Hill’s Pet Nutrition and Health Center.
The Manhattan Mercury reports a 270-seat auditorium will be built in a different area of the veterinary medicine complex.
Bonnie Rush, interim dean of the college, says she expects construction to begin in the summer.
