Despite on-going construction, four of Western's newly-renovated dorms are open and housing students. Construction crews are still installing new roofing, but that didn't stop hundreds of college students from moving in this past week.
The $14.5 million renovation includes the construction of private bathrooms, plus new furniture and an updated outer appearance. In addition, crews are working to convert a roadway into a courtyard area in the middle of campus.
The university will hold a dedication ceremony next Thursday.
