After the shocking reports of Stuednt Eye blog on the bad situation of AUI-S dorm students at Manolya Hotel, the AUI-S Administration, mainly Dr. James Harrigan, the Academic Dean of Students, decided to take action.
A new apartment, Rona Motel, on the 60th street near to the AUI-S campus, was rented. 24 of the students at Manolya chose to go to the new hotel and 31 students decided to stay. The new dorm, according to the students, met their expectations.
The old dorm, Manolya, is now less crowded than before. Like the other hotel, there are rooms of three and four students and no more. As we have shwon in the report, Manolya now is different from Manloya a week ago.
While it is soon to decide on the serivces level at Rona Motel, the Manloya Hotel managers need to do more to improve the situations.
According to some of the Manolya residents, water service is not provided at soem of the rooms. In the mornings, some of the students have no water. The washing machines are also not working well at most of the Manloya rooms.
AUI-S administration should put more pressure on the managers to provide better services for the dorms.
