Glen Oaks approves residence hall

Glen Oaks Community College Board of Trustees voted this week to approve a $5.3 million bid to build a student residence hall on the Glen Oaks campus.
The bid, submitted by Frederick Construction of Vicksburg, includes all desired alternative options, according to school president David Devier.
The three-story, student-housing unit is to include two- and four-suite units that share kitchen and living areas, and two bathrooms. The 108-bed facility will be located on the north side of the main parking lot, west of the main building.
Devier said Glen Oaks will become the first Michigan community college to use a low-cost, USDA Rural Development federal 30-year loan to finance the housing project. It will be the ninth community college in Michigan to add residence halls to its campus.
A public groundbreaking takes place Dec. 14. The estimated completion date is August 2017.
