FRAMINGHAM (CBS) – One of the effects of a down-economy has been an increased interest in state colleges and universities, which offer many of the benefits for less money.

Last fall, it had to temporarily house some of them in the nearby Sheraton Hotel.
This year Framingham State is opening up a huge new residence hall to help accommodate the growing numbers of students.
