RENOVATIONS AT LAS
Currently, the Savoy building is undergoing extreme renovations. The facade is being painted, parking spaces are being added to the 3rd floor entrance and the south side balconies are being closed in for better thermal insulation. By the beginning of the 2014/2015 school year, all renovations will be complete. 
Our Beau Site girl's dormitory is also receiving some attention. All dorm rooms are being upgraded to junior-suite style rooms. This means each room will include a small living room, as well as a wardrobe, desk and dresser for each student. The beds are no longer lofted as well.
