WKU Closing Dorm to Remove Mold
By The Associated Press
BOWLING GREEN - Western Kentucky University officials are closing a dorm and moving almost 350 students to other residence halls after finding mold in Minton Hall.

University spokesman Bob Skipper told news outlets on Thursday that the building will close on Monday so that an outside contractor can remove and replace contaminated ceiling tiles. He said officials plan to reopen the building in January.

Students were notified Wednesday evening they would have to move and were told the university would provide assistance for the relocation.

Skipper said the mold was found while crews were cleaning the building. He said it is not toxic black mold, but it could cause problems for someone allergic to it.
