WMU East Campus future debated

Mar 27, 2013

For more than a decade, Western Michigan University’s East Campus has been a virtual ghost town. However, the University announced last December that it would turn its original home into a new alumni center. To do that, the university plans to tear down two historic buildings and part of a third, and that isn’t sitting well with some in the community.


Western Michigan University President John Dunn sat down on Tuesday with WMUK’s Gordon Evans and Mlive/Kalamazoo Gazette reporter Ursula Zerilli to discuss a wide range of issues.
