Two new residence halls planned for BGSU

BOWLING GREEN -- A residence hall and two fraternity houses will be razed to make way for two new dorms at Bowling Green State University, officials announced Monday.

The new dorms are part of a complete overhaul of campus residence and dining halls.

One of the new residence halls will be built where Rodgers Quadrangle and the Sigma Phi Epsilon and Phi Kappa Tau fraternity houses are now located off Wooster Street.

While Rodgers was closed before this school year in anticipation of changes, the students who live in the fraternities are figuring out where they will go.

The university provided the fraternities, which have about 60 students combined living in the houses, options last week for different on-campus housing.

They are being asked to move over winter break because demolition is planned for April to make way for construction of the new dorms, which are expected to be completed by the 2011-12 school year.
