Multiuse Dormitory a Good Idea for CSU-Pueblo

Here’s a great idea (imho!) Perhaps we could lure more students on campus and create more community if we constructed a “multiuse” dormitory such as the one described below. While it is a space that might be considered more appropriate in the urban setting of NYC, I think it has components that would be very beneficial here. It is attractive, it houses students and faculty in the same floors with shared laundry and community spaces. It includes a shared garden space. And, perhaps most importantly, it has commercial space on the bottom floor. In this particular dorm, the bottom floor will be occupied by a non-profit daycare center and a college career counseling/mentoring center. I suspect our students might be attracted to a more non-traditional on-campus housing option such as this!
I read this on StevenB’s Blog:
