Associated Press - August 15, 2014 7:19 am

A spelling mistake on a water tower in Wichita that drew national attention and a lot of laughs has been corrected.

Students will begin moving into a new, high-tech residence hall at Wichita State University this weekend.

The university says Shocker Hall, which opened Thursday, represents the Wichita State’s commitment to residential living on campus.

The Wichita Eagle reports the hall offers about 780 beds in five different room styles, with a 24-hour front desk, five Wi-fi connections per person and high-tech lounges.

Residents also will enjoy a 400-seat dining hall and coffee shop, a kitchen and laundry room on each floor and a main lounge.

The project cost about $60 million.
