New residence hall coming

The Southwestern College board of trustees voted unanimously to move forward with the construction of a new residence hall. Following action by the 27-member board, design development work began immediately and the facility will open as early as the summer of 2023. The board decision comes on the heels of Southwestern’s recent selection by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) for an $11.66 million financing package through the Rural Development Community Facilities direct loan program to build a new residence hall.
