Louisiana College adds apartments

Louisiana College, a Baptist college in Pineville, is adding a new apartment-style housing project to its campus

The $2.1 million, 45-unit facility will be the second structure in what is to become a quadrangle of student apartments with a courtyard and study area, announced Marc Taylor, college board chairman.

“With the college’s on-campus housing at maximum capacity, the school began the fall semester with 49 students housed in rented rooms at the Fulton Hotel in Alexandria,” Taylor said. “The apartments under construction will relieve the overcrowding and will help in accommodating the rapidly growing student population.”
