Foundation Hall welcomes students back to the corner of 17th Avenue and Jefferson.

One year ago, 318 17th Avenue East in Alexandria was a dirt plot. Today, it's where students plot their futures in Foundation Hall.


The school year has begun; the grand opening hoopla was held and now it's time to get down to business - and the hall is doing pretty well.

Director of Student Housing and Foundation Hall Manager Jenny Odland said they are at full occupancy.
