[January 21, 2014]  Students will find improved classrooms at Lincoln Christian University this fall thanks to the generosity of Robert J. Woods and Joan Jarrett Woods through the Woods Foundation. A total of $50,000 in gifts will help revamp Dowling Auditorium in Restoration Hall and several classrooms in the Charles A. Mills Administration Building. The result will provide an enhanced instructional experience for students meeting in those facilities.

The renovation project will include replacements and upgrades to furniture, painting, and carpeting. Once completed, these improvements will assist LCU in attracting and retaining students.

Total costs for renovations will be approximately $103,000. An estate gift to LCU in 2013 will be used to cover the remaining costs of the project.

Prior Woods Foundation gifts have been used for library renovations, improvements to the Earl C Hargrove Chapel and other critical LCU needs. Last year LCU received a $40,000 matching grant for a new minibus to carry athletic teams and students to off-campus games and events.
