Adivsers were told during
Resident Adviser training
at the beginning of the
semester that if renovations
were on schedule residents
will have to move into the
newly renovated building.
The purpose of the move
is to continue renovations
to the residence halls as
quickly and efficiently as
possible so C9astruction
would be completed on
campus.
Continuing renovations
on Brewer residence hall
would speed the process
along, since all dormitories
are scheduled to be reno
vated
Most students who live
in Brewer are freshmen and
sophomore students with
the exceptions of Resident
Advisers.
Senior Laura Bates is the
Resident Adviser for the
fu’st floor. She has lived in
Brewer four years, as a res
ident her freshmen year and
as a Resident Adviser her
sophomore, jimior and sen
ior year.
“I have been priviledged
enough to
live in
Brewer
for all of
my four
years here
at
Meredith.
It has
become
my home.
[ am sad
dened by
the idea
that in my
final year
at
Meredith
I will be
ripped
from my
homey
surroundings just to move
to an updated dorm room,”
said Bates.
Junior Neph Bailey is
also a Resident Adviser in
Brewer for the second
floor, said the move is
adding stress to an already
stressfiil time.
She said, “I am feeling
very stressed about a mid
semester move with fmals
and trying to finish up this
semester. It’s like picking
up and starting all over
again.”
Students said have
mixed emotions about the
possibility of moving Into
Faircloth.
“I feel priviliged that we
will be able to stay in a
new building, but it’s
stressful moving mid
semester,” Bailey said.
Bates has similiar feel
ings as well. “I think
Faircloth renovations are
great and defmetly needed.
I know the college will
save money by keeping the
construction company here,
but I feel as though it will
be such an inconvience.”
There was a meeting
held Tuesday night to clari
fy the details of the situa
tion. Look for coverage of
this meeting and the possi
ble move to Faircloth in
next week’s Herald.
