BUYS WORTH APARTMENTS FOR STUDENT HOUSING
Trinity completed another
successful initiative to meet the need for additional student housing when
administrators finalized the purchase of the Village, an apartment building
in Worth, Illinois, immediately north of Palos Heights. Interim President
Tony Diekema and Tom Vloedman, vice president for business affairs, signed
the closing contract June 4, sealing the deal on the College's second acquisition
of off-campus property in three years.
"We are very pleased to acquire
this property," said Bryan Carrier, residence life and housing coordinator.
"It gives us the flexibility to provide adequate and more comfortable living
space for our students."
The units will be refurbished
this summer and ready for occupancy in August. Like the Burbs, the Crestwood,
Illinois, apartment complex that the College bought in 2001, the Village
will be home to juniors and seniors.
"It's exciting to be able
to move forward," Carrier said. "We want to start on those renovations
right away so our residents will have a smooth transition when they return
to start the new academic year."
