The construction of a nutrition center planned for LSU has been canceled, The Advocate reports. Instead, the university will incorporate a nutrition center into Tiger Stadium. The state’s budget crisis influenced the decision to halt construction.
“We said, ‘Are we doing the right thing fiscally? Does it make sense with the budget crisis going on?” said Eddie Nunez, deputy director of athletics in charge of projects, according to The Advocate. “This space is already here. We’re trying to take that foundation and design (of the nutrition center) and bring it here.”
The athlete-only dining area will be located in the south end-zone addition.
