Re-opening of the Towers at Centennial Square means 600 more spots for students wishing to live on campus; 102 students will be part of a Science and Technology theme community

San Francisco State University freshmen and sophomores -- arms full of treasured possessions from home and nervous parents in tow -- will move into the newly refurbished Towers at Centennial Square. The Towers, which were closed in 2000 because of problems with water intrusion and mold, provide apartment-style living for 600 first- and second-year students.

Part of the building is allocated for a Science and Technology theme community for freshmen who are interested in science- and tech-related majors. These students will receive on-site tutoring in such stumbling-block classes as calculus and organic chemistry, participate in a weekly dinner with faculty members from the College of Science and Engineering, and have access to an on-site computer lab.

With the reopening of the Towers, SFSU now provides housing for 2,270 students -- the most in the University's history. The University also houses 850 freshmen and sophomores in Mary Ward and Mary Park halls and 760 juniors, seniors and graduate students in the Village at Centennial Square.

About 100 SFSU freshmen who are moving into the Towers and their parents are taking part in an early orientation program called Welcome Home. Welcome Home helps ease the transition to campus residential life for students and their parents with a two-day program that includes workshops on such topics as safety, stress and time management, and financial planning. The rest of the students will move in Sunday, Aug. 22.

9 a.m. - noon, Friday, Aug. 20; 9 a.m. - noon, Sunday, Aug. 22.

Towers at Centennial Square, 795 Font Blvd. (at Lake Merced Boulevard), San Francisco State University, San Francisco. For a campus map, call William Morris at (415) 405-3606 or visit:
