Ribbon cutting set for residence hall

East Central Community College in Decatur will cut the ribbon on its $6.6 million New Women’s Residence Hall at 10:30 a.m. Tuesday.

And the facility is already filled to capacity with a waiting list of nearly 75 female students who wish to live on campus.

The ceremony will be held near the entrance to the new facility located on the South Campus adjacent to the existing Erma Lee Barber Women’s Residence Hall.

Tours of the residence hall will be available afterward.

The residence hall was funded from bond revenue and financial support from each of the five counties in the college’s district.

The three-story facility includes 56 rooms, a study area and a kitchen on each floor for student use, and a coin-operated laundry room. It also includes wireless internet and cable TV similar to the seven other student living facilities on campus. The lobby includes a television and social and study space for the residents.

Applying for Americorp. Any tips?

I'm applying for Americorp right now. I have moderate but consistent community service experience. I volunteered at camps, art museums, and community gardens throughout high school.


If you are as enthusiastic as you sound, I don't know how you would not be accepted.

I know many many people who have volunteered through Americorps just being a high school student, high school graduate or in college.
