TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) – Soon enough it will be back to the books for many college students throughout Indiana. As students at Indiana State University begin to move into their new homes, they might notice a change.
On Thursday, ISU unveiled their new residence hall in more than 40 years, Reeve Hall. What used to house just undergrad women will now only cater to the sorority students at the school.
The new hall is in collaboration with the two departments of housing & residence life, and fraternity & sorority life.
“We’re really excited to build our sisterhood up even more being able to live near each other and other sororities on campus,” says Alexia Curly, member of Alpha Chi Omega Sorority.
The $25 million project includes more than 100,000 square feet in two buildings, multi-purpose meeting rooms for the sororities, private and shared bathrooms, presidential suites and state-of-the-art security to ensure safety of the students living there.
“I already felt safe on this campus, but this just makes me feel even more at home,” says Swapna Namburi, member of Alpha Sigma Alpha Sorority.
