Plans underway for new BHSU dorm



It will be the first of its kind in 50 years, and for that reason, it's no wonder that staff and students at Black Hills State University are excited about the construction of a new dorm.

Plans have been underway for roughly five years to build a 200 student resident hall.

The hall will likely break ground in early summer of 2014, and ultimately connect Thomas hall and Heidepriem hall.

With just over 700 students living in dorms currently, University Administrators say they hope the new dorm will entice more students to make the campus their home.

"Our new residence hall is really suite style living. It will be two bedroom units, with four students and they share a bathroom. That's very important, it allows students more privacy and more independent living," said Lois Flagstad, Vice President for Student Life.   

The dorm is yet unnamed, and University Administrators say they'll be asking the university and northern hills community for help choosing a name that carries significant meaning to the area.
