Housing and Dining services see major changes behind and ahead of them this semester. Joe Mills, director of Dining Services and Housing and Residence life said the best thing accomplished this semester in housing was the development of the “Freshman Experience” model for all freshman housing to be implemented next year, the upcoming completion of Castle Heights residence hall.

Mills said the Castle Heights housing will be finished by the fall semester and furniture will be ready to move in by July.

Mills said he is looking forward to the next semester and moving on with plans for Phase Two housing which would replace Cross, Killebrew and Rawlins and the opening of new dining options and venues.

The demolition for Cross, Killebrew and Rawlins will begin this summer.

He said a decision has not been made on the new dining contract bid. “We need to wait in final financing and bid results for the project. That will help campus decide the scope and size of the project.” TAS
