A nearly 60 year-old brick building on the Las Vegas campus of New Mexico Highlands University may soon see significant upgrading.
The Sininger Hall, located at 616 11th Street, was built in 1962 and originally served as a dormitory for the school’s male students. The building measures around 26,000 square feet.
The facility was significantly upgraded and expanded some 20 years later, and now houses NMHU’s Department of Business Administration.
School officials have long wanted to add modern energy-efficient upgrades to the building, and may soon get that chance if voters in November approve a $156.3 million general obligation bond.
Of that amount, some $7 million will be dedicated to the upgrading of Sininger Hall, which is named in honor of long-time NMHU education professor Harlan Sininger.
If passed, Bond C will fund a variety of higher education, public school, and native tribal facility construction and upgrade projects across New Mexico.
