DODGE CITY, Kan. (AP) -- Dodge City Community College is building a new men's dormitory.
The Dodge City Globe reports (http://bit.ly/16LYO7k ) that the new 120-bed building is scheduled to be completed by July 2014, with students moving in by fall of that year. The groundbreaking ceremony was Friday morning.
The new dorm at the community college comes after the recent completion of Jackson Hall, a women's dormitory.
The new building will be three stories high and will include social lounges, study areas, large TV viewing areas and laundry facilities in each wing of the hall.
Beverly Temaat, dean of student services, says the decision to build the new structure came from increased housing demand as well as demand for newer facilities. The building will be entirely paid with money from student fees.
