Listen to a conversation between a student and a university activities coordinator.
I understand your problem, but the upper level of the Student Center isn’t available for the time being.
But my dance group has a performance coming up.
I’ve been talking with people all day long who are in the exact same situation.
There are at least a dozen dance and drama groups on campus, and they are all scrambling for rehearsal space right now.
But I made this reservation last June, before leaving for the summer.
No one said anything about construction.
That’s because no one knew that the remodeling was gonna run over into the beginning of the school year.
The builders are just way behind schedule. For a while, we weren’t even sure that the dining hall on the lower level would be ready for the start of the semester.
So, it could’ve been a lot worse.
So when will...?
The whole upper level will be ready in six weeks. The rehearsal rooms, the game room, the computer center.
Six weeks! That’s not gonna help me. Our performance is in five weeks.
