It takes a Village

Chase Sackett (left), a junior majoring in classics and economics in Arts & Sciences, leads visitors on an open house tour of Village East residence hall Sept. 16. Sackett gave his perspective on living in the new building, which opened in August. Tours were available for interested faculty, students and staff. Village East contains approximately 152 beds for upperclass students living in four-bedroom apartments. The building boasts several study, program and meeting spaces on three floors. The lower-level lounge includes a flat-panel television and an enclosed patio accessible to all residents.
