With the intense construction around the Briggs Apartments and Lewis Townhouses, the students have a lot to say about it.

It is true that construction does cause some inconvenience, but it will hopefully benefit the students.

Even though many had a positive view towards the construction, others do not enjoy it.

“I hate how it wakes me up every day at 6:30,” said Meghan Maker, a junior Communication major. “But I understand that they have to get to work.”
