New Women’s Residence Hall Opens at Corban CollegeNew Women’s Residence Hall Opens at Corban College
The unofficial figure for current student enrollment is roughly 900, a 5 percent increase over last year.
(SALEM) - Corban College students arriving “on the hill” were greeted by a changed skyline that now includes a brand-new Northwest-style women’s residence hall.
The $3.5 million as-yet-unnamed hall is the newest building in a series of recent construction projects. Like the others, it was added to serve a growing student body.
The new hall’s completion follows that of Davidson Hall, a men’s dorm, in 2004, and the Psalm Center, a $3.6 million performing arts complex, in 2005.
Classrooms and some faculty offices were also completely re-vamped in 2005.
The new residence hall houses 110 students. Student housing fees are expected to pay off the building over the next 15 years.
The three-story dorm was designed to fit into its natural hillside surroundings. It features a stone façade and a two-story stone fireplace. Maple accents, large windows and colorful tiles are used inside.
Music students welcomed the new dorm’s two insulated practice rooms, a feature not found in any other residence halls on campus.
Corban received occupancy permits from Marion County three days before students began arriving on Aug. 26th. Fall semester classes at the college began on Aug. 30th.
