Many new residents are thrilled with the renovations.
"It's good, much better than the old one.It's cheaper than off-campus," said Poonnachit, a horticultural science major who recently transferred to one of the new buildings."Before, you had to install your own air-conditioner and a gas heater.Now, we have central air-conditioner, and the kitchen is remodeled also."
