Also speaking will be Brady Adcock, president of the MHU Student Government Association and Residence Director of the new dorm.
Laurel Residence Hall is located at 90 Joe Anderson Drive, Mars Hill. The event will take place in front of the residence hall.
An additional new residence hall, named Dogwood, is currently under construction at Mars Hill. The Grand Opening for Dogwood, located at 155 Townhouse Drive in Mars Hill, will be October 5.
