The College’s Physical Plant displayed Herculean efforts in transforming the former Creekwood Townhouses from a rundown, federally subsidized housing complex into the College Commons for the 2000 Fall Semester. The staff had just over a month in summer 2000 in which to essentially gut each of the 32 two-bedroom and six three-bedroom apartments spread over six buildings on the southwest edge of campus. A local church sold the complex to the College upon expiration of its management contract with the U.S Dept. of Housing and Urban Development. The townhouses complemented the Campus Village, which opened for fall 1998, as especially desirable alternative housing from traditional dormitories.
Each student room is furnished with desks or study tables, chairs, beds, dressers, and wardrobe closets. Each student room also has wi-fi and basic cable TV hookups.
