GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP) — A group of students and faculty at The University of North Carolina Greensboro are speaking out against the school’s plans to build a new $91 million recreation center.

At a rally on campus Wednesday at the proposed site of the new center, the group protested the proposed cost of the project and the how much students are paying in debt service fees to cover the expected costs of this building and six others that have already been built.

Students at UNCG pay more than $700 a year to help the university repay those construction costs.

Reade Taylor, the university’s vice chancellor for business affairs, told the News & Record of Greensboro that the school’s costs are in line with other comparable UNC universities.
