The campus of Kennesaw State University plans to expand by more than 25 percent.
The school has acquired mostly undeveloped land for an athletic park on the eastern side of Interstate 75.
Kennesaw State sits mainly now to the west of the interstate. But rapid growth in enrollment and limited availability of land is pushing the university in north Cobb County eastward.
Within the past year, the school's foundation has put together 88 acres of land between I-75 and I-575. At least seven soccer-size athletic fields will be built along with a track and restrooms.
A jogging trial will encircle a 10-acre lake.
Kennesaw State is Georgia's third-largest university by enrollment.
