Virginia Tech Sending Students To Hotel

(Blacksburg)- A Blacksburg hotel is expected to be home for some Virginia Tech students starting in August.  The Roanoke Times is reporting that the university has reached an agreement with the Holiday Inn Express on Plantation Road to help its spike in enrollment for the next academic year.  The 195-bed hotel is expected to act just like a dorm, complete with resident assistants.  University officials are looking for a total of 500 additional beds outside of the campus.
