University of Tennessee Breaks Ground on Sorority Village

Sketch of Proposed Alpha Delta Pi Sorority House

This past weekend the University of Tennessee broke ground on its new Sorority Village on Morgan Hill. The first stage of the project will be the community’s infrastructure. Then work can begin on the construction of 13 sorority houses that will make up the community. The sorority houses will range in size from 9,000 to 17,000 square feet. Costs per house range from $3 million to $5 million. The largest of the sororities will house 48 women.

The sorority houses will use private funds to complete the construction. A commons building that will include offices and meeting space is being partially funded by the university. Also, the university set aside 21 acres of land for Sorority Village.

The first group of women are expected to move into Sorority Village in the fall of 2012.
