A $3,000,000 fundraising effort is being conducted by Moberly Area Community College (MACC) for an expanded student housing development on the campus of MACC-Moberly.
The Moberly Area Community College is raising funds for the construction of a 64-bed dormitory through a campaign entitled Bring Home the Hounds. Using the former college bookstore, Greyhound Hall’s [tentatively-named] new student housing will be constructed in two stages. During the first phase, 38 beds and restrooms will be added to the former bookstore, as well as common areas and laundry facilities. The project is scheduled for completion by early August. A new addition to the building will add 26 beds by December 2022, bringing the total cost of the project to around $3 million. A total of 116 beds will be available at MACC-Moberly when it is completed.
During their January 2022 meeting, the Board of Trustees approved the construction of a new dormitory to accommodate these new student-athletes and increase housing availability for all students on the Moberly campus. While the housing project is prompted by the addition of baseball and softball programs, space will also be available for non-athlete students to live in the dormitories.
“We believe Bring Home the Hounds will benefit Moberly and the surrounding area as well. Increasing student housing on campus means an increase in students in the community over the short-term. The local economy will be enriched when students shop and eat at local establishments. In the long run, it will result in more students connecting to Moberly and MACC. These connections make a lasting impact and keep former students connected to our community long after their time at MACC,” says MACC President Dr. Jeff Lashley.
