The brief piece included footage of construction of Rector Village, which is proceeding at the former site of Rector Hall (read more here). Anchor Ray Cortopassi noted that two of the seven townhome-style buildings will be ready for the spring semester.
"They'll be suites for 8 or 4 people per suite," assistant dean of students and director of housing Dorian Shager told the TV station of the new buildings, which will feature single rooms. "They all have a kitchen, living room, two private bathrooms, you can live with a group of your friends -- just a lot more amenities," he said.
