Governor Mark Dayton is scheduled to visit St. Cloud State University Tuesday. It's one of a number of recent stops he's been making after the legislature wrapped up its session last month to talk about the state's budget and bonding bills.

St. Cloud State University is receiving about $18.5 million in newly passed state funding for the renovation of Eastman Hall on campus. University President Ashish Vaidya says the remodel will transform the school's fourth oldest building into a diverse but interconnected set of health and human services-related programs and services.

Eastman was built in 1929 and cost $225,000 to build. It was named after Alvah Eastman, a former St. Cloud resident director to the State College Board. Eastman Hall was used as the original home of basketball, volleyball and swimming.

The governor's discussion begins at 2 p.m. in the Administrative Services building on campus.
