Southwest Ohio university completes $93 million renovation


OXFORD, Ohio (AP) — Students at a southwest Ohio university will find $93 million worth of completed renovations when they return to campus this week.

Miami University students will see completely renovated residence halls with new dining facilities at the Oxford campus.

Spokeswoman Claire Wagner says the overhauls on the campus’ East Quad are part of more than $200 million in projects that are in various stages of completion.

The face-lift includes a number of green energy features, including chairs made entirely out of recycled soda bottles.

The North Quad is undergoing similar renovations at a price tag of more than $98 million. Those are expected to be completed by the fall of 2016. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
