Hutchinson Community College is so crowded that officials are negotiating to buy 10 apartments near the campus for student housing.
The college's board of trustees approved spending up to $600,000
on the two-bedroom apartments.
Vice President of Student Services Randy Myers says the college
will house four students in each unit.
The Hutchinson News reports that the community college has
housed some students at a Ramada Inn for part of the last two years
because the dormitories on campus are full. Myers says even if the
apartment deal becomes final in March, some students will still
have to be housed at hotels.
