Students flock from dorms to Main Street apartment building

Posted: Updated:
COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) -

A number of different restaurants, apartments, and other businesses have made their way to Main Street in downtown Columbia.

Now, Main Street has attracted a new crowd to the area. With classes already underway, students have traded in their dorm room keys for apartment keys in The HUB, a high-rise apartment building.

"When I lived in dorms last year, you would have to walk everywhere," one student said, "but now I can walk and it's convenient."

Although some college students are staying in The HUB, an employee for the apartment building says being a college student is not a requirement to live in the building.
