 SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (AP) - Missouri State University plans to add more student housing by updating two buildings with strong connections to Springfield's history.
 
The university will spend $1.8 million to improve Kentwood Hall and another $1 million to renovate Sunvilla Tower.
Kentwood was built in 1926 and was once a premiere hotel, where Harry Truman and Groucho Marx stayed. The 19-story Sunvilla Tower, built in 1963, was once was one of the most sought-after apartment locations in Springfield.
 
The Springfield News-Leader reports when the renovations are complete, students who are 21 or older will be able to drink alcohol in their rooms. University officials say both buildings will be marketed to older students.
 
ST. LOUIS (AP) - A Washington University research project is under scrutiny for its off-label use of a contraceptive device.
 
The research project provides free birth control devices to poor and uninsured women and teenagers in the St. Louis area for three years. The university says the study has led to fewer pregnancies and fewer abortions.
 
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that a 27-year-old woman is suing the university's medical school over what she calls an unethical research trial using a contraceptive device called Mirena.
 
The device is a small, T-shaped plastic frame that's inserted into the uterus and releases a hormone to prevent pregnancy.
   
The woman says using the device soon after she gave birth resulted in two heart surgeries and a chronic illness. The university denies the lawsuit's allegations.
