West Liberty University interim President John McCullough says no decision has been made on a proposal to close three buildings on campus.

McCullough says the university is studying other options to reduce costs.

He says the closure of the Annex, College Hall and Shotwell Hall was included in a recent budget discussion as a possible option.

McCullough's comments came Wednesday during a faculty meeting. He gave a similar message to students and staff in a campus-wide email that the university released on Wednesday.

Media outlets report that dozens of students attended the faculty meeting to protest the proposed building closures.
