HATTIESBURG, Miss. (AP) - William Carey University president Tommy King says a 100-bed dormitory is nearly booked up, and its construction just got underway.

The Hattiesburg American (https://hatne.ws/1zqbWyf ) reports that ground was broken Friday for the $4 million men’s residence hall.

King says men’s residence halls were overbooked by 71 last fall.

Freshman Lane Williamson experienced that first-hand. He says he and his two roommates had to figure out how to divide two closets and two desks among three students.

The new dorm should be completed by July. It will be the ninth residence hall at William Carey.
