Students begin moving into �The Lodge�
In just a little over two months time, Cowley College transformed the
former Medicalodge North facility into the school’s sixth dormitory.
With classes set to begin Aug. 18th, students began moving into the
new dorm Tuesday morning.
The new dormitory, called The Lodge, is located at 2575 Greenway in Arkansas City. It will house an additional 51 students plus a dorm manager.
Tony Crouch, Cowley College executive vice president of business services, was impressed by the work that was done to ensure the remodeling/renovation of the facility was complete by the time the students arrived for the fall semester.
“It was a team effort by everybody, everyone pulled their weight,” Crouch said. “The contractors worked long hours to get the building ready.”
Along with The Lodge, Cowley also has the Oscar Kimmell, William R. Docking, D. Robert Storbeck, Kirke W. Dale, and Central Avenue dormitories.
