Winston-Salem State to put students in hotels

WINSTON-SALEM -- Officials at Winston-Salem State University don't think they will be able to fit all the new students this fall into its dorms. The school is expected to need 260 hotel rooms off campus for this year's new students. Winston-Salem State expects to have about 1,200 freshmen this year. That would break the school's record of 1,083 freshmen in 2005. Chancellor Donald Reaves told the Winston-Salem Journal the school has been adding housing, but this year's surge caught officials by surprise. Winston-Salem isn't the only school with the problem. The newspaper said Elizabeth City State University and East Carolina University in Greenville are also trying to figure out where to put students.
