Troy University cuts ribbon on new fraternity village

Troy, AL. (WSFA) – Just under a year after construction first began on Troy University's Fraternity Village, the University officially cut the ribbons on seven new fraternity houses.

 The 8,517 square-feet two-story houses are built in a traditional neighborhood-styled development along Pell Avenue and provide 24 beds per house. The University owns the housing development and leases the houses to the seven fraternities. Each house follows the same floor plan and includes a chapter room, a social room and laundry facilities in addition to the bedrooms.

"Fraternity Village will reshape our Greek System in a very positive manner," said Dr. Jack Hawkins Jr., Chancellor. "It will make us stronger as a University and will foster a greater involvement in campus life for our fraternities."

Construction on the $8 million project began in October 2009 and the units were ready for move in at the beginning of the fall semester in August.

"There will be some finishing touches added here and there by the fraternities, but this project will add great stability to our fraternity system and create a springboard for its growth," said Dean of Students Herbert Reeves, whose office oversees student life.

Inhabiting the houses are Alpha Tau Omega, Delta Chi, Farmhouse, Lambda Chi Alpha, Pi Kappa Theta, Sigma Alpha Epsilon and Sigma Chi fraternities.

Whaley Construction of Troy is the project's general contractor and McKee and Associates of Montgomery are the architects.
