Trinitas, a national developer of student housing, broke ground on Wednesday for a new site being developed over the next few months for students who are looking to live within biking distance of classes and community. Dubbed a “bicycle community,” Trinitas celebrates both the housing’s location and tailored Carolina style.
The tent and refreshments were organized by Kelly Burroughs and Ashely Ewing.
Groundbreaking ceremonies always include golden shovels and hard hats and this one was no different!
