MORGANTOWN -

West Virginia University has broken ground on a few more buildings.

The university held a ceremony Wednesday celebrating new homes for the College of Physical Activity and Sport Sciences and Student Health and Wellness.

The facilities will cost about $40 million. The construction is a part of the school's $250 million Evansdale renovation.

WVU's Student Government Association Vice President Jarred Zuccari said a strong and dedicated health facility will make an impact in the classroom.

"Student health on campus is very important," said Zuccari. "If you're sick you're not going to go to class, graduation rates will increases, grades will increase. Students are inclined to better when they are feeling better."

The building will be located near the Student Recreation Center and expected to be completed by February of 2014. Its construction is a part of the school's $250 million Evansdale renovation.
