Keenum Tours Rosenbaum Building

Meridian, Miss. Mississippi State University's president made a stop in Meridian Tuesday to take his first tour of the new Rosenbaum building.

This was the first time Dr. Mark Keenum had seen the building since they began these renovations. He examined the high-definition 3D table for exploring human anatomy, a machine to determine body composition and even classrooms with moving cameras for streaming lectures between the Starkville and Meridian campuses.

"I remember when I first came and saw this building when it was an abandoned department store," Dr. Keenum says. "And seeing it today in this grandeur, and all of the wonderful equipment and furniture and classrooms, I'm overwhelmed by it to be quite honest with you. "

He says he's looking forward to seeing what's to come.
