Valdosta - New and improved housing is on the way for one South Georgia college.

Tuesday, Valdosta State University broke ground on its new 35.6 million dollar housing project. Phase 1 of Centennial Hall should be finished by next spring, and phase 2 will be complete by Fall 2005.

The contemporary-style housing will hold 518 beds. "These are private bedrooms with Internet connections, a shared bathroom, large closet spaces, a full kitchen, full dining room and living area," said V.S.U. President Ronald Zaccari.

The new housing complex will be built on Sustella Avenue beside the Student Recreation Center.
