EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) – A Michigan State University residence hall lobby refurbished through a $200,000 Consumers Energy donation will be dedicated during a ceremony on the school’s East Lansing campus.
The event will be held Friday afternoon at Wilson Hall.
The space has been redesigned and is decorated with colorful circles and geometric patterns. The school says it offers students a gathering space with charging stations and other furnishings to encourage studying and socializing.
It is part of the College of Engineering Cornerstone and Residential Experience program. CoRe is a first-year academic program and living-learning community for engineering students.
More than 50 Michigan State students had internships last year at Consumers Energy and more than 400 graduates work full-time for the utility.
The unit of Jackson-based CMS Energy Corp. serves 6.5 million Michigan residents.
