VSU has big plans for 2003

 

 

January 13, 2003

Valdosta - The first day of spring semester kicks off a year of change at Valdosta State University.

"It's going to be a big year for us," said Rob Kellner, VSU Auxiliary Services. "There's a lot in store."

At the top of the agenda is new and improved housing. "We have plans for a new residence hall that will accommodate up to 300 students and include a suite/apartment like setup with no community restrooms," said Kellner.

Residence Hall Advisor Karen Shultz has lived in the dorms for 3 years, and says it's desperately needed. "We've got a waiting list right now so everyone can't get in a dorm that needs to," said Shultz. "Additional housing is definitely a need here."

Next on VSU's to do list is rectifying the infamous parking situation. This tops students' list of things needing improvement.

"Now we have to park in 20 minute or at the Valdosta Board of Education, because all the VSU spaces are already full," said Brooke Wetherington, VSU Student.

But more parking spaces are on the way. "We've got a parking advisory committee whose going to identify where the problem is, how we can fix it, and we should have about 200 new spaces for use by this fall," said Kellner.

VSU officials say as enrollment numbers continue to rise, they'll continue to expand and make the needed changes to provide a comfortable and professional learning environment.
