Saint Leo University Unveils Students' New Hi-Tech Digs

September 17, 2012

Business leaders, community leaders, students and faculty had the chance to tour the new 135,000 square-foot residence life center at Saint Leo University last week. The $22 million complex consists of two buildings with a shared courtyard, and suite-style dorms housing a total of 300 students. But, this is no ordinary dorm. You could say it is the difference between staying at a hotel, and staying at a resort with all the amenities you could want! Like something you would see on The Jetsons, the dorms include a hi-tech relaxation room with energy pods, where students can take quick naps to give them an energy boost for their day.  But that's not all! The new dorms are complete with four large flat screen TVs, a fitness room with treadmills and equipment, and a game room with pool tables, pinball, Foosball and video games. Fans of the Animal Planet TV show "Tanked" will love the new 2,100-gallon aquarium designed by Wayde King and Brett Raymer, owners of Las Vegas-based Acrylic Tank Manufacturing. The huge fish tank is the centerpiece of the dormitory lounge and will be featured on the TV show in November!
