Construction on a three-story residence hall for the Macon Campus of Middle Georgia State University (MGA) is underway, with a formal groundbreaking scheduled for 11 a.m. Thursday, May 16.
The $18.5 million project will result in the first residence hall ever built on MGA’s Macon Campus, which opened in 1968 as a small commuter college. In 2010, the owners of a private apartment complex adjacent to the Macon Campus sold the property to the University System of Georgia, which gave what is now Middle Georgia State its first student residence community, known today as University Pointe.
The new residence hall, to be called Lakeview Pointe, will roughly double the number of students who can live and take classes on the Macon Campus.
