Castro Talks New Student Union, Performing Arts Center At Fresno State
Some big changes could soon transform the Fresno State campus, if university president Joseph Castro has his way. Students next month will vote on a plan to pay for a new $80 million student union facility to replace the existing one, which is nearly 50 years old. The university is also studying the feasibility of building a new performing arts center, which would hosts events that are too big for existing on-campus theaters, but too small for the massive Save Mart Center arena. He joined Valley Public Radio's Valley Edition to talk about those plans, as well as a proposed new medical school for the valley, something he says should be built in collaboration with the University of California.
