Residence Hall Ribbon Cutting at Talladega College


The oldest private historically black college in the state held a ceremony celebrating the opening of its new state of the art residence hall. The new building is 45,000 square feet and features 103 suites that will house more than 200 students. There are also several group study rooms and lounges equipped with energy-efficient features.

President Billy Hawkins says the campus hasn’t had new construction in 30 years and the students are beyond excited at what new facilities and opportunities Talladega College will now have to offer. In addition to the residence hall, a student center and museum is also being constructed on campus.

The student center will open in August and is to include a 2,000 seat gymnasium, dining hall, and more. The museum opens in October and will house the college’s Amistad Murals and other works of art.
