Trine University • Angola, IN

(ANGOLA) - Things maybe quiet on the Trine University campus right now but 600 new incoming students this fall will bring the total number of students at all of the Trine campuses to more than 3,000 for the first time. In addition to the record enrollment, university officials say the retention of students has increased by seven percent during the past two years.

To handle what is being called significant enrollment growth, the university is planning on $12 million worth of construction which includes a 170-bed apartment style residence hall on Thunder Drive to help with the influx of new students. It is expected to be completed in 2015. The new Thunder Village is scheduled to be opened in early August. It is located south of the soon-to-built residence hall.

Renovation work has also begun at Ford Hall which will take it out of commission for the 2014-2015 academic year.

There will also be a 300 seat cafeteria expansion.

Work has finished at Trine's School of Health and Sciences in Fort Wayne which is the home of the university's new physical therapy program.
