University officials decided that Norman Hall, the University of Florida’s education building for over 80 years, is in need of a renovation.
Glenn Good, dean of the College of Education, said the facilities are out-of-date and do not have the 21st-century capabilities necessary to teach future educators.
Beyond the outdated equipment, the building shows symptoms of long-time wear, such as peeling paint, damaged windows, pipe breaks and electrical problems. It is still running off mechanics from when it opened, in 1932.
University officials are currently waiting for the state to approve funding.
