HATTIESBURG, Miss. (AP) - With campus dorm space maxed out, William Carey University officials announced relief in the form of a 92-room women's residence. It's just 1 of several building projects on the school's horizon.
On Wednesday, university President Tommy King called the groundbreaking another important step in the growth of William Carey. King says that will help the school avoid its currently cramped residential quarters.
The Hattiesburg American reports (http://hatne.ws/WDgufO ) approximately 25% to 30% of the Hattiesburg campus's 2,400 students live on campus.
King said the new dorm will have common areas, private bathrooms and even a swimming pool.
