New $6M Frat House Approved For LSU Campus

BATON ROUGE (AP) — Kappa Sigma fraternity will build a new $6 million, 23,000-square-foot house on LSU's campus.

         The Advocate’s Elizabeth Crisp reports the LSU Board of Supervisors agreed to plans for the three-story fraternity house, which will replace the existing Kappa Sigma house. It will be paid for entirely by the fraternity, but the LSU board had to approve the fraternity house design because it will be located on campus.

         The current house is about 77 years old and was one of the first built on LSU's campus.

         Chip Weimar, head of the fraternity chapter's housing corporation, told the LSU board on Friday, the fraternity is in the fundraising stages and has collected about $2 million.

         He says the new house will sleep 52 students, plus a housemother.
