Despite various donations, a campus jogging track still lacks the required funds for construction, Dr. Royce Money, university president, told the Students’ Association Congress Wednesday.
Construction of a paved and lighted jogging trail around campus would cost about $450,000, Money said. Thus far, classes and individual donors have given a little under $100,000 for the project.
“I would like to see the students take on the walking trail as their project” for the university’s centennial, Pam Money, the president’s wife, told Congress.
The discussion came as part of a time in which Money and his wife answered questions from Congress at the couples’ house.
No business was discussed, except to clarify the status of the standing committee on the budget.
Committee chair Erin Baldwin, Administration Building, resigned from Congress, throwing the chair to a majority vote of the committee, to take place Monday.
Money said he has had “a pretty long and positive experience with SA.”
On the jogging trail, he said the track could be built as money is available. If so, he said, the first segment would be built along Judge Ely Boulevard.
