The summer season is here, and we’ve been busy at work preparing for the arrival of the Class of 2015. As we grow and get better, we take seriously our commitment to improving all of our residential facilities on campus.
A year ago, all four residence halls saw significant renovations in their main lobbies, including the construction of new front desks in Biever and Buddig Halls, and new flooring, paint, and furniture in all halls.
This summer, the progress continues on an even grander scale. Fall 2011 will see the launch of Loyola’s Free Laundry program, including a total renovation of the laundry room in Biever Hall.
Additionally, work has begun in Biever Hall to remove old carpet in all common areas. The underlying terrazzo flooring will be refinished. At the same time, all residential rooms and hallways will receive new paint, including some splashes of color that are sure to liven the building up (not that Loyola’s residence halls needed any livening!)
In addition to these projects, Cabra Hall, an upperclass residence hall located next to the College of Law, is receiving major updates. Photos and updates on this project are coming soon!
We will keep the Loyola community posted via this blog throughout the summer, so please check back in weekly. I also invite you Follow us on Twitter and to Like us on Facebook, where even more updates, photos, and commentary will be posted frequently!
