MONROVIA, April 9 (LINA) - The Alumni Association of the University of Liberia (AAUL) says it will shortly begin the construction of its Hall valued at US$25,366.78 on the main campus of the University of Liberia on Capitol Hill in Monrovia.

AAUL President James S. Davis said the Hall will comprise of offices to host the AAUL, computer laboratory and reading room, among others, to afford students of the University of Liberia the opportunity to do research and do their assignments and school notes.

He made the statement Thursday at a program marking the donation of 200 wooden arm chairs and two digital hard drive photocopiers valued at US$11, 118 by the Alumni Association of the University of Liberia (AAUL) to the University of Liberia.

Meanwhile, Mr. Davis has disclosed that the AAUL will shortly launch an endowment scholarship fund for students of the University of Liberia.

Davis said as a true manifestation of their commitment, the AAUL will next week setup a committee that will head the scholarship endowment.

He said funding for the construction of the AAUL Hall and the endowment for scholarship was generated during the University of Liberia Alumni fund drive held last year.

At the same time, Davis has lauded the President of Liberia, Madam Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, the Managements of the National Port Authority, National Social Security and Welfare Corporation as well as Alumni of the University of Liberia for their meaningful contributions that have enabled the association engage in these ventures.

In remarks, the Vice President for Academic Affairs of the University of Liberia and acting President, Dr. Ophelia I. Weeks, lauded the AAUL for their plan to construct a hall on the UL campus, noting it will benefit not only students of the University but students of other universities in the country.
