Dec 19, 2012 6:47 am
Kyle Adams reports in the Register Star the possibility of on-campus student housing will be considered next month by the Board of Trustees of Columbia-Greene Community College. A feasibility study begun this summer will be presented to the board at that time. The study was conducted by a Chicago-based firm and is part of the college's strategy to attract more students. The college currently has an enrollment of more than 2,100 students. Most commute from their homes in Columbia or Greene counties. Out of county students now must rent rooms or live together in rented homes or apartments off campus. The study will determine if there is a need for student housing and if it is economically feasible for the college to provide that housing. No taxpayer dollars are involved in student housing at community colleges, according to GCCC President James Campion. Read the full story in the Register Star.
