The residents of the newly renovated Vaughn Hall had an opportunity on Aug. 26 to meet and thank those who contributed the $315,000 to make the upgrades and new furniture possible. Dozens of students, staff, donors and alumni attended a ceremonious ribbon-cutting and open house event that allowed the donors to tour the residence hall and to meet its residents.
â€œOn a scale of 1 to 10, I give the new renovations a 12!â€ exclaimed Vaughn resident Spence Robertson, a sophomore music education major from Walnut Cove, N.C., who lived in the residence hall last year. â€œSince the renovation, a new light of community has emerged. A greater sense of respect and care for the facilities are well noticed and Vaughn residents are pleased with the new upgrades.â€
The donors were also pleased with the modifications.
"I think it looks really wonderful and I hope that the students are as thrilled with it as I am," said Concord resident Tomy Aldridge, from the class of 1975 who lived in Vaughn Hall during his sophomore and junior years at Pfeiffer. "Everything done has enhanced the residence hall's environment and overall livability."
