Colorado State University-Pueblo’s library renovation project is on schedule and within its budget. The library will re-open its doors spring of 2011.
With help from local construction company H.W. Huston, CSU-Pueblo is bringing new life to the library that will strive to meet Leadership, Energy, Efficiency and Design standards.
John Barnosky, director of planning and construction at CSU-Pueblo, explained that by meeting LEED standards, the building will be more easily controlled operationally as well as the comfort for people who use the physicality will be well maintained.
Colorado State University-Pueblo’s credentials earned the university the GEICO Achievement Award, which will present $75,000 in scholarships to students.
This marks the first time that CSU-Pueblo has been selected as a GEICO Achievement Award recipient, and was the only school in Colorado to allow students to apply for the scholarships, according to the student career center.
Tanya Baird, internship coordinator for CSU-Pueblo, encourages students to get
involved with scholarships like this that are chosen specifically for CSU-Pueblo.
