Talladega College this morning cut the ribbon on its new, state-of-the-art residence hall. The 45,000-square-foot building is on the college campus at 130 Martin Luther King, Jr. Drive. It cost $20 million and features 103 suites for approximately 201 students, group study rooms and lounges, and energy-efficient features such as LED lighting and access control cards for entry.
The residence hall is the first of three major construction projects scheduled for completion this year. The college is also building its first-ever student center, as well as the Dr. William R. Harvey Museum of Art, which will eventually house Hale Woodruff’s renowned Amistad Murals.
