BATON ROUGE, La (BRPROUD) – Southern University will soon have a new gateway at its main entrance to the campus.

The new Harding Boulevard gated entrance is the first of three in the works at Southern.

Other entrances that serve as connections between the community and the university are Swan and mills Avenues.

“Of that master plan really speaks to our efforts to really transform the physical plan of this campus, infuse it with technology, but also to recognize that we have aged facilities and we need to begin to replace those with state of the art buildings and infrastructure,” said Dr. Ray Belton, President-Chancellor Southern University.

The Harding Boulevard entrance is part of the University’s facilities master plan.
