The Summer Renovation Wrap-Up
The students have returned, bringing with them the mayhem, cheap beer, occasional studying, and good times that we recall.
That also means we’re done with big repairs and renovations for the summer.
Dumpster Day was a smashing success, too. In less than 2 hours we filled a 20 yard dumpster. That item getting smashed in the pic below…wait for it…the ramshackle make-shift bar that lived in The Triple for many years. It had to go for the remodel…sorry, not sorry.
Here’s a recap of how the money you and your fellow alumni contributed went to good use:
THE GRAND TOTAL $45,117
Bedroom renovations – New floors, patch and paint all walls, new LED lights, new bathroom floors in Chapter Room ($27,240)
