Guam - A $21.7 million loan from the United States Department of Agriculture has been secured for two projects at the University of Guam.

UOG president Dr. Robert Underwood said, "I want to say that the student service center will be a magnificent three level structure that will be built on top of the existing structure we have here in which the facilities will form the a level and you will have this second level and then the third level over us. The additional piece is of course the school of engineering annex which will be built next to the college of natural and applied sciences which is now being used as a parking lot."

Underwood says the Student Services Center will be the signature piece of the system of buildings at the university and will serve as the activity center which will invite student activities. As well as significantly change how students experience service delivery and access opportunities for educational advancement.
