The new South Residence Hall at Wake Forest University was dedicated on Monday afternoon. It fits right in on our relentlessly neo-Georgian campus, but has the distinction of being the first LEED-certified building on the campus (hooray!). Jon and other members of the capital planning committee toured the building in March, permitting the blog to offer a nice combination of in progress and "work completed on schedule" photos. The freshmen who will live in the dorm arrive today. Nate, it seems, thinks he should be one of them.
