The new dorms have opened up at Highlands University, and they are a showcase for the school.
As sure as it rains during the Fiestas, local leaders will be contemplating about whom to name the new residence hall after. If history is any guide, it will be named in honor of a professor or a politician.
Last year, a group asked the Board of Regents to name the hall after state Sen. Pete Campos, D-Las Vegas. We’re not sure why a university building would be named after a state senator, except that he did his job and helped secure the state funding for the project.
