Columbia College opens first new dorm in decades
Columbia College can stop converting lounges into dorm rooms and renting off-campus apartments to house its students. On Wednesday, the college opened its first new residence hall in more than 50 years.
New Hall, which administrators expect to be at capacity with 150 students this fall, welcomed its first group of students for move-in Wednesday. The building is also the new home of the Robert W. Plaster School of Business and includes classroom and event space.
