Black Hills State University to get new residence hall


It's not just a college dormitory, it's a 'living and learning center.' That's what the vice president of Black Hills State University says about a future residence hall on campus. 

At a ground breaking ceremony Friday morning, faculty and students celebrated the first step in constructing a new dorm called Crow Peak Hall.

This dorm will connect two existing residence halls and create a multi-purpose room where students can interact and study. The building is about 10 years in the making and will cost $13.7 million dollars.

Chase Vogel, student association president, says faculty considered the desires of students when designing Crow Peak Hall.

And one perk of living in these upper-class dorms is more privacy. "They have a suite-style room, two bedrooms conjoined by a bathroom, so it enhances the privacy," said Vogel. "So you go through the traditionally shared bathroom experience in the residence hall then you get to appreciate the upper classroom living a little bit more."

Crow Peak Hall is expected to be completed by summer 2015. Upon competition, it will be the first residence hall built on campus in nearly 50 years.
