ULM nursing building as good as new
University of Louisiana at Monroe nursing students and teachers are back in a building drenched by Hurricane Gustav.
It took nearly $3.1 million to repair the auditorium, classrooms and several laboratories in the three-story building.
The electrical and lighting systems are better than they were before Gustav, and tile has replaced carpet throughout the building.
ULM has 250 students in its professional nursing program and another 500 in its pre-professional program.
ULM Interim President Stephen Richters said donations from the community and students - including $10,000 from nursing students - helped renovate the building.
