As we all have seen here at Seton Hall there is a lot of construction taking place on campus. Besides the construction that is going on this semester, there are numerous projects that are set to begin next year.
Among the construction projects that are scheduled, one of the projects that directly involves students is the construction that will take place in Aquinas Hall.
Although Aquinas is considered to be a freshman dorm, next year Seton Hall administrators are offering a 20 percent discount on housing for upperclassmen that agree to live there.
This discount on housing can be enticing to many students, however, there seems to be some potential downfalls.
Students will have to deal with construction that at times will be extremely loud and disruptive. The construction, which primarily will be done in the morning, has the potential to wake students up and interrupt them when they are studying and preparing for class.
Aquinas is also considered to be a freshman dorms so many upperclassmen may not want to live there -- feeling that in some way they are downgrading.
While it is commendable that Seton Hall is taking on so many renovation projects in order to better the living and learning environment for current and potential students, the university must realize that students want to live in dorms where they feel comfortable and will not be disrupted.
