EDMOND, Okla. (AP) – The University of Central Oklahoma says it has met its $40 million fundraising goal six months early.

The school said Tuesday that nearly 7,000 people donated to its "Always Central" campaign and that nearly two-thirds of the donors gave money to the school for the first time.

Fundraising will continue through next June. The money is being set aside for scholarships, endowed chairs, direct support of programs and the renovation of Old North, the oldest building on campus.

The school said it still needs another $800,000 for more changes to Old North, which was built in 1893.
