VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) - Valdosta State University is ready to unveil the newest addition to the campus.

Tuesday, they'll cut the ribbon of the new Hopper Hall.

The residence hall will house more than 500 students in suite-style living.

The building will also house a dining hall, office suites and the mail center.

The 21 million dollar project is expected to become the new center of campus and is already in high demand among the students. 

"Based on student applications, this clearly is the student's first choice of residence halls. Being a former housing person I learned a long time ago not to say ones better than the other but from the student's perspective, this is where they want to be," says Rob Kellner with Auxiliary Services.

Hopper Hall is one of seven projects currently under construction on campus. Eight more are slated to begin in January. It's all part of the universities master plan to grow to 16,000 students by 2020.

    A South Georgia man was given a bell two years ago, but it wasn't until two weeks ago that he discovered there was an inscription on it. Now he's looking for its rightful owner.
