CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Three newly-constructed residential halls will house about 400 students at Austin Peay State University when classes start for the fall in August.

Workers have been busily putting in ceiling tiles, making finishing touches on paint and installing carpet in the three tall brick structures. The university's director of housing, Joe Mills, told The Leaf-Chronicle the buildings are about a week apart in their progress, but all will be ready to go by August when students are scheduled to move in.

The $34 million project is envisioned to provide cohesiveness to all the housing on the west side of campus.

The residential halls replace Cross, Killebrew and Rawlins halls. The three new residential halls have been named Governors Terrace North, Governors Terrace South and the Martha Dickerson Eriksson Hall.
