READING, Pa. -

Alvernia University is continuing to grow in southwest Reading.

The ribbon was cut at the school's new Campus Commons building Wednesday afternoon.

The new building features a two-story fitness center and a dance and aerobics studio.

There's also a campus living room where more than 100 students can gather.

The building also brings student services, student leadership, campus ministry and student activities under one roof.

Construction on the building started in May.
