Dorm Storm 2016With the fall semester beginning Tuesday, August 16, Cowley College students began moving into the dorms on Saturday during the school’s annual Dorm Storm event held from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

A cookout outside the McAtee Dining Center followed the event, while Cowley students also had an opportunity to swim for free at Paris Park Pool.

Quentin Dickey, a recent graduate of Newton High School, was among those moving into the dorms on Saturday.

“When I was looking at what college to attend Cowley stood out with its affordability and quality programs,” Dickey said. “The people and dorms here are really nice.”

According to Landon West, director of housing, the dorms are near capacity.

Dickey plans to major in computer science and looks forward to being active on campus.

“I hope to have a fun college experience and get a good education which will allow me to transfer to obtain my four-year degree,” Dickey said.
