Shorter University is working with architects on plans for a new 100-bed student residence facility.  According to a Shorter media release, the facility will provide much-needed student living space for the university.
University President Dr. Donald Dowless says, “Shorter University has had tremendous growth, and in the fall of 2011, our record enrollment included approximately 120 students who wanted to live on campus that we were unable to accommodate with on-campus living.  The student experience is enriched by being part of the campus community, and we are excited that this new construction will allow us to have even more of our student population reside in our Christ-centered campus enviroment.”

A team from Atlanta-based Cooper Carry is working on the plans for the building; architects involved in the project include Tim Fish, Lyle Green and David Goodman.  Allen Hornback of Marietta-based ADE Builders is serving as contractor for the construction of the project.  

The new residence facility will be located behind the Sheffield-Thompson Building between the Newman Hall and Hazel Eubanks Hall residences.  A groundbreaking will be held in the near future.  The facility is expected to be completed in time for use during the fall semester.
