Construction is complete on
the newest on-campus housing unit, Meadow Hall, on Southeast Community
College’s Milford Campus. The 54,268 square-foot building will house nearly 150
students. Each room has a kitchenette area with a refrigerator, microwave oven
and sink. A ribbon-cutting ceremony was held on Wednesday, Aug. 18, at the site
of the facility.
“It’s exciting to open Meadow
Hall, our second new residence hall on the SCC Milford Campus,” said Ed Koster,
campus director. “It will mean all students who choose to attend SCC Milford
will now have suite-style housing units which creates better spaces for
students to learn and be successful in their academic pursuits.”
SCC President Dr. Paull
Illich spoke at the ribbon cutting, in addition to board members. Tours of the
facilities took place afterwards.
In 2018, SCC’s Board of
Governors approved issuing up to $19.5 million in revenue bonds to finance new
residence halls at the Milford and Beatrice campuses, as well as a dining
facility at Beatrice.
Prairie Hall, which is almost
an identical dormitory, was built two years ago in Milford. Sampson
Construction was the contractor and Clark Enerson served as the architect.
