Oklahoma City, Oklahoma (PRWEB) January 29, 2014
Rose State College in Oklahoma City announced that its board of regents recently approved the resident halls project, which is now moving into the planning and evaluating stages. A target date of August 2015 has been set for the housing to become available for students.
"Rose State College is excited about taking this bold step as we continue to put in place a series of innovative programs and facilities that will elevate the college to a whole new level," said Dr. Jeanie Webb, president of Rose State College.
"The desire for housing has been a consistent theme among many of our students, including our athletes and leadership program students," said Dr. Webb. "We know that providing a housing option can add a new dimension to our students' college experience, and we are thrilled that our board has been so supportive."
The Rose State College campus will be going through a number of major facility-based changes in the next two years as projects begin to be implemented based upon last year's passage of the college's local bond issue. Additions to the library, modern IT infrastructure, and upgrades to the wellness center and aquatic center are among the other changes taking place.
