LAFAYETTE, Louisiana — Less than $23,000 stands between South Louisiana Community College's goal of raising more than $2 million for its new $17 million health sciences building.

The project is part of more than $250 million in planned Louisiana Community and Technical College System projects approved by the Legislature in 2013 — with the caveat that the colleges raise a percentage of construction costs on their own. SLCC had to raise 12 percent of its project's cost.

Christine Payton, SLCC public relations director, tells The Advocate ( ) plans to start construction of the health sciences building in 2015 are still on track with the state Bond Commission's approval of the project on Thursday.
