MAY 13, 2005--Community members, current and retired staff, and students got the first peek of the new suite-style residence hall at the dedication of the George R. Field South Fork Suites on May 9. Speakers included Interim Chancellor Virgil Nylander, Rep. Kitty Rhoades (R-Hudson), Ed Wenzler, architect of William Wenzler & Associates, Jamie Wise, student chair of the 2003-04 residential living committee, Nick Cluppert, student senate president, and Field. The building name plaque that honors Field was unveiled just before the ribbon-cutting ceremony. The hall will house 240 students in 60, four-person fully-equipped apartments. Each wing per floor also has a community kitchen, lounge area and laundry room. The hall also features several meeting rooms and a high-tech conference room. The $11 million facility was funded entirely by student fees.
