East Village welcomes its first residents

East Village joins North Village (2004) and Brooks Village (2007) as new Baylor residence halls that have opened in the last 10 years. Prior to those, the last new Baylor residence was South Russell, built in 1967. This year, South Russell is closed for a massive renovation; each of Baylor's older halls will undergo a similar update, one a year, over the next decade or so. Even with South Russell offline, about 40% of Baylor's student body will live on campus this fall.

If that's the case, Baylor University has never offered a better view than right now: national championships in women's basketball and equestrian; Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback Robert Griffin III; women's basketball National Player of the Year Brittney Griner; a trip to the Elite Eight in men's basketball; baseball's Super Regional run and 24-game winning streak; first-round picks in both the NFL and NBA drafts; Big 12 Players of the Year in football, women's basketball and baseball; and postseason appearances for all 19 teams for the first time in school history.
