Kiana Ford is a sophomore at Kent State studying Early Childhood Education. After living in Wright Hall that is well renovated with air conditioner and carpet last school year and then moving to Dunbar with no carpet and no air condition she did not think changing dorms will be a big deal, but she believes some of the student housing on campus need to be upgraded.
In Prentice students will be able to control the room temperature by switching from air condition to a heating system. Dunbar and Verder will remain a non-air condition buliding because the cost factor will be will over $1 million.
Prentice and Dunbar will be receiving a new face lift. The halls and the rooms will receive fresh coat of paint plus new carpet all across the hallways and rooms. On the first floor of Dunbar, the two main lounge students use will be getting new furnitures. John White associate director of residential facilities is happy he is accomplishing something the students want.
Kiana is still deciding on whether or not to move back to Wright Hall because Dunbar will not be getting air condition. She expects all the residence halls to be up to standard. Prentice Beall and McDowell will be upgraded by August 9th.
