McLaurin Residents Receive New Washers & Dryers

The 52 female residents of McLaurin Hall will be walking taller and looking even sharper after becoming the new recipients of a trio of new washers and dryers that were installed last week. The machines are in addition to the ten recently installed washers and dryers in the student Laundromat located in the Frank W. Gambrell, Jr., Student Multi-complex Building.

And the good news, just like the new machines in the Laundromat, students will be able to use the machines at no cost.

“We recognize the financial hardships that college students have, especially those who are living away from home,” said CCC President Dr. Valmadge Towner. “Having washers and dryers available for our students to use is just one of the ways we can relieve a little of that burden, and is part of an ongoing effort to make our students feel like Coahoma is their home away from home.”

Currently, the campus is outfitted to house just fewer than 300 students in its three residence halls. In addition to the 52 students living at McLaurin Hall, Friends Hall houses 120 male students, and Moore’s Hall houses 120 students with female students living on the second floor and male students living on the first.

Scheduled for completion in March, the McKinley C. Martin, Sr., Residence Hall, named after CCC’s third president Dr. McKinley C. Martin, will house another 56 students.
