On the move!  Some Samford students will begin their spring 2013 semester in the university's new West Village.

The residence hall project, which features three new buildings on campus, saw its first building open its doors to 100 students.  The first building, Barbara Drummond Thorne Hall, features four single rooms, two bathrooms, a common room, and a kitchenette.

Students were able to move into Thorne Hall this past weekend, and are excited about their new 'home away from home'.
