Marian College DormsMarian College is about to add its first new student housing in more than 40 years. Construction is set to begin this summer on a 78-rooms, 144-bed residence hall, designed by locally based CSO Architects Inc. The 114-acre campus just south of 38th Street and Cold Spring Road also is getting a new athletic facility, in part to host a new football team.

  • WOW! not too bad imo... would have liked to see progressive architecture from a university, but that is very very good nostalgiac architecture!
  • yep... it's a dorm all right. Plain brick box? check.
  • I've seen the rendering above full size, and it is a very beautiful building! Lots of detail and really nice limestone accents. It will really fit into campus well. And the columned porches provide very nice, shady areas for students, which overlook the surrounding meadows and volleyball court. It is also very smart that Marian isn't putting up some trendy, flavor-of-the-month modern mistake, which would have been way out of place in this historical campus. Nice job, Marian!
  • Its better than a white siding dorm structure.
    It follows the architecture of the area.
    Hopefully they use good materials so it doesent look fake.

  1. Can your dog sign a marriage license or personally state that he wishes to join you in a legal union? If not then no, you cannot marry him. When you teach him to read, write, and speak a discernible language, then maybe you'll have a reasonable argument. Thanks for playing!

  2. Look no further than Mike Rowe, the former host of dirty jobs, who was also a classically trained singer.

  3. Current law states income taxes are paid to the county of residence not county of income source. The most likely scenario would be some alteration of the income tax distribution formula so money earned in Marion co. would go to Marion Co by residents of other counties would partially be distributed to Marion co. as opposed to now where the entirety is held by the resident's county.

  4. This is more same-old, same-old from a new generation of non-progressive 'progressives and fear mongers. One only needs to look at the economic havoc being experienced in California to understand the effect of drought on economies and people's lives. The same mindset in California turned a blind eye to the growth of population and water needs in California, defeating proposal after proposal to build reservoirs, improve water storage and delivery infrastructure...and the price now being paid for putting the demands of a raucous minority ahead of the needs of many. Some people never, never learn..

  5. I wonder if I can marry him too? Considering we are both males, wouldn't that be a same sex marriage as well? If they don't honor it, I'll scream discrimination just like all these people have....
