JSU’s new business building should be completed by fall

A new business building for Jacksonville State University, replacing one destroyed by a tornado nearly three years ago, should be completed by this fall, school officials say.

Work on Merrill Hall has passed the midway point, almost a year after it began, and is on schedule despite the COVID-19 pandemic, the school says.

“We’re very excited about moving into the new building this summer,” Dean Steven McClung said. “We believe it will give our students access to the latest technology and facilities, providing an education that will make them extremely competitive in their fields.”
