Update: Smith-Kirkley

There finally appears to an answer in regard to the future of the Smith-Kirkley Hall. Having been noticeably absent from the Residence Life website for many months, and unavailable for occupancy during the 2006-07 school year, it was anyone's guess what was going on. Everything seemed to indicate the end of the 40-year old building in the heart of campus.

There finally appears to an answer - in regard to the Kirkley half, at least. According to the Walker County Alliance, Kirkley is undergoing internal renovations to become the home of various offices, for at least one dean and SHSU Phon-a-Thon. As was noted in March, Raven Village is opening this fall with 400 available beds; in the event there is any sort of overflow, Smith Hall can be reopened to accommodate 200 beds.
