From the Daily Egyptian:
As of fall 2018 SIU will no longer house students in the towers, Chancellor Carlo Montemagno announced today in a university press release.
Student housing will be merged together on West campus to increase student engagement in the upcoming fall semester.
“By bringing students together in Thompson Point, we can continue to build a tightly knit, engaged community,” Montemagno said in the release. “It will also increase traffic to our Student Center, which should be a centerpiece of campus life.
