On December 2, "Phase One" of new residence hall construction on campus began. The $87 million project first started with the removal of what students have dubbed Humpy Lumpy Lawn, where a new dining venue and welcome center will be erected. 

Nightingale Hosted Shelters has spent the past five years building homeless camps in Eugene, and 147 of its residents have gone on to find permanent housing. It looks to continue that trend as it prepares to build the 20th — and final — hut at its 34th and Hilyard Street rest stop.

It's hard to avoid all the construction happening at the University of Oregon, from renovations and demolitions to the new track-and-field stadium. Amid all the noise, the Daily Emerald found time last week to ask UO students about what they think about the construction on campus.
