MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) -- Kansas State University is receiving $4 million to help expand and renovate the building that houses the College of Architecture, Planning & Design.

The gift comes from a foundation named after Victor and Helen Regnier. Victor Regnier, who died in 2000, was a longtime homebuilder and developer in Johnson County.

Besides helping to pay for $75 million in improvements at Seaton Hall and Seaton Court, a portion of the gift will be used to establish a lecture series.

One of the Regniers' children, Victor, graduated from Kansas State and now is an architecture professor at the University of Southern California in Los Angeles. He says the newly improved building will provide a wonderful environment for learning.
