Construction of Claflin's new dorm is coming along very smoothly. Despite Orangeburg's icy temperatures last week, construction workers weren't hesitant to get back to work when the university reopened on Thursday. The new dorm is expected to be available for new residents by fall 2014. Many students are excited about the exercising gym that will be inside the new dorm. At the rate these construction workers are going, the dorm may be complete sooner than we think! Stay on the lookout, you guys!
