COLUMBIA, Ky. -- In less than a month, two more
buildings will be brought online on the Lindsey Wilson College A.P.
White Campus. A new residence hall will be open when students
return to campus on Aug. 13, and a new classroom building will be
open when the 2011-12 school year gets under way on Aug. 17.
LWC's latest residence hall will open a year after the college
opened its largest residence hall, four-story, 186-bed Harold J. Smith Hall.
The new residence hall -- located on the eastern edge of campus
-- will house up to 156 female students in 16,100 square feet of
space. It will include 52 rooms and a resident hall director. The
cost of the one-story building is about $800,000.
LWC housed a record 1,052 students in 2010-11, and more than
1,000 students are expected to live on campus during the '11-12
Among the building's features will be interactive classrooms
that will provide nursing majors with cutting-edge technology and

Counseling work with its more than two dozen locations in five
