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.

Even with South Russell offline, about 40% of Baylor's student body will live on campus this fall.
