‘Extreme Dorm Makeover’ at Harding University

A $4.5 million construction project was launched at Harding University this week.
The project has been dubbed “Extreme Home Makeover: Dorm Edition 2010,” according to Harding officials.
Harding’s physical resources department joined other staff members and construction workers on campus Tuesday to kick off renovations for Sears Hall.
Sears, the largest dorm on campus, was built in 1975 and is undergoing the first renovations since its construction, a news release says. Renovations will include mechanical upgrades, a new cooling and fresh air system, an allergy free wing and many cosmetic improvements.
The project is scheduled to wrap up in early August — just in time for the start of the fall semester.

  • Feedback
    I lived for a semester and part of the summer in Allen Hall. The first time I visited the college they put me up in the really nice first floor apartments. I thought that was what the whole dorm was like. Then my family moved me in for the Spring 1998 semester and I discovered bitter reality. The two guys who had the room before me (and subsequently withdrew from college) had completely and literally trashed it. There was trash and filth wall-to-wall. Several garbage bags later and with a vacuum borrowed from the dorm dad we made it livable.
    Harding housing, if you read this, I still want the cleaning deposit those dummies paid and which you kept.
