‘Busy’ summer at Milligan to yield housing for 90 additional students10:00 am | June 21, 2013
Some might think college campuses can be somewhat sleepy during the summer months.
For Milligan College, however, that’s rarely the case.
“The summers at Milligan are always very, very busy,” said Milligan President Bill Greer. “We use this time for … cleanup, repair, and maintenance that we can’t do when the kids are here. But we also try to do whatever campus improvements we can do.”
This summer, part of those campus improvements will include the completion of the first phase of a new set of residence halls – known as Milligan Village – which has been projected to increase the school’s student capacity by 300.
“The housing village has been something that we’ve worked on for a number of years,” Greer said. “That village will ultimately be 12 new residence halls; we’re building five of them right now that will be open in time for students to move into this fall.”
