With its opening, 250 students are provided a safe, comfortable living environment that features a wide array of amenities.
“Maryville is a student-centered institution and that commitment extends beyond academics,” said President Mark Lombardi. “We’re dedicated to providing state-of-the-art facilities that include this residence hall, a new dining hall and additional facilities to enhance the student campus experience.”
Alderman Phil Behnen and Director of Planning Sharon Rothmel of Town & Country were on hand for the ceremony, along with other University friends and business partners.
“Everything Maryville University is doing – from this residence hall to the main building renovation to the new soccer practice field – is really enhancing Town & Country. We have a great relationship with Maryville University and we love to see the school succeed,” said Behnen.
