University of Miami students recently moved into Lakeside Village, the new $153 million housing project that has state-of-the-art construction, landscaping, and, according to a lawsuit, code violations that could “result in life-threatening danger to students.”
Stanford Residential College has roughly three months remaining to serve its purpose of housing first year students. However, as its demolition approaches it has drawn out memories, both good and bad, of student and faculty experiences within the building.
Though Coral Gables may fall prey to high living costs like all urban cities do, not everyone thinks it should lose its historical fingerprint.
Quaint or outdated? The renovations of historical Building 48 in the School of Architecture leaves many people ecstatic about its preservation, but others calling for big change.
“This is the first time the outdoor fields behind the Wellness Center will be completely renovated,” said executive director of the Herbert Wellness Center, Scott Levin.
In tune with University of Miami tradition, representatives from several student organizations competed Oct. 29 for a spot on the 2018 homecoming court during the annual King and Queen Pageant. Contestants participated in choreographed dances, performed themed homecoming skits and showed off their special talents, all with the hopes of being crowned a member of the homecoming court.
“We decided that we wanted to delay the village’s opening to ensure a high-quality living experience from day one,” Vice President Patricia Whitely said. “We didn’t want anything to detract from students’ ability to study.”
The first phase of the decade-long project to modernize all student housing on campus is expected to be complete in 2019. Students will be able to sign up to live in the village in the spring 2019 semester.
