Clarkson University today announced updated to plans for its old downtown campus buildings, including a new data center, arts facilities, a business startup incubator, and space for its graduate physical therapy and physician assistant programs.
With installation of fencing this week around Clarksonâ€™s Old Main, University President Tony Collins used the opportunity to speak about renovations to the historic building in downtown Potsdam and the investment in the future of its downtown campus, emphasizing the commitment to the economic health of the North Country.
