The September/October Spotlight Section of ACUHO-I’s Talking Stick magazine features the newly renovated student dining and residence halls at Western Illinois University.
The dynamic redesign has energized student life at the university. According to John Biernbaum, associate vice president for student services, “The Corbin-Olson renovation has been a game changer at WIU for our residence hall students. It has completely transformed that community into a beacon for faculty-staff-student interaction. In addition, it has helped tremendously with recruitment and retention.”
