The dream of Greek housing on campus became a reality this month with a celebration that brought hundreds of visitors to campus for the ribbon cutting.
The newest addition to the 645-acre campus includes a community building, an outdoor basketball and volleyball court, outdoor green space, parking and 18 houses in the following sizes: eight 20-bed houses; three 16-bed houses; three 10-bed houses; and six 6-bed townhouses.
Each house has a living/chapter room, kitchen, laundry facilities, a mix of single and double bedrooms, and semi-private bathrooms. Altogether there will be housing for 262 students.
“As part of the university’s strategic plan, we committed to improving the quality of the university experience for students,” Dr. Melanie McClellan, vice president for Student Services, explained. “The opening of Greek Village, along with The Coliseum and the stadium, will make 2009-2010 an immensely exciting year for the university as we continue to be more of a destination institution.”
