This past week, students were invited to tour 65 Campus Ave., one of the College’s new dorms. This gave students a chance to see how they were coming along and get a feel for how they will look when finished. Senior Katie Kaplan, despite her upcoming graduation, wanted to see the new dorms. She was impressed with what she saw.
“Although it was still under construction, you could tell that the architects put a lot of thought into making the building appealing to all types of students,” Kaplan said.
Chris Streifel, the project manager of the new dorms, led the tour. He explained how many things were taken under consideration in designing the building. The slope of the roofs, energy efficiency, space efficiency, and many more details were considered in order to create the best possible space for students. Even without seeing the finished product, the building will be a great place to live, hang out, or do work. About two hundred students will be lucky enough to live there at the start of the 2016-2017 academic year.
