Students Coping With UWL Dorm Crunch

When U-W-La Crosse began work on a new academic building last year, two old dorms had to be demolished.

Now, there seems to be some second-guessing about whether Baird and Trowbridge Halls should have been torn down before new housing was built. Residence Life director Nick Nicklaus says the building schedule on campus did cause a little problem, and "ideally," a new dorm would have been ready by the time those two halls were demolished.  Two freshman dorms had to put three to five students in some rooms this year, to make up for the loss of two halls, but Nicklaus says the students handled the situation well. However, U-W-L did impose an early deadline this year for getting into dorms next fall.
