HANOVER, Ind. (AP) — A former sorority house that's been a landmark on Hanover College's southern Indiana campus for more than 80 years has a date with the wrecking ball.

Hanover College Vice President for Business Affairs Mike Bruce says the three-story building known as The College House has a laundry list of woes, including foundation, roof, flooring and sewer line problems that make it too expensive to renovate.

The Madison Courier reports (http://bit.ly/1gcIB2X ) the house was originally built as the Alpha Delta Pi sorority house in 1929. It was last occupied during the 2008-09 school year when it was home to the Sigma Chi fraternity.

School officials expect the demolition to be complete by late September on the campus overlooking the Ohio River about 40 miles northeast of Louisville, Kentucky.
