A groundbreaking ceremony was held Tuesday afternoon to celebrate the second phase of the two freshman suites that are being built in what was once the F8 parking lot in the University Park Apartments.

The new suites are expected to open by 2015 and will be located outside of Hawthorne Hall and Pinon Hall. Students and designers were invited to the ceremony where President Dr. Dianne F. Harrison gave a speech.

The new dorms will have the same design schematic of Mariposa Hall and Toyon Halls.
