Trine University is expecting a record class of 725 new students this fall, with an expectation of 1,600 students living in residence halls, which would be another record for the Angola school. Trine says the new Fabiani Hall will help manage demand for on campus housing.
“An increasing number of students and families are not only recognizing the value of a Trine education, but also the value of the residential experience on our vibrant campus. We especially appreciate the wisdom and foresight of the university’s Board of Trustees, who quickly approved the addition of our newest residence facility to meet continued demand,” said Earl Brooks II, Trine University president.
Trine says the new 101-bed Fabiani Hall features studio-style apartments similar to other residence halls on campus. The university also began building the Steel Dynamics, Inc. Center for Engineering and Computing this summer to house academic programs. The $12.5 million, 40,000 square foot facility will feature virtual and augmented reality and artificial intelligence laboratories to support the computer science and information technology major.
The school expects to have construction complete on the new center later in the summer.
