From The Kansas City Star: With 320 students moving into the school’s new residence hall, administrators at the University of Missouri-Kansas City are expecting a more bustling campus. The look and feel of the place has changed since construction began transforming the commuter campus into a more residential school. That fits plans to increase enrollment 25 percent by 2012.

They're building swanky student housing, jazzing up food options and even keeping libraries open 24/7 in their quests to become more like a "real" college campus.
