Since the fall of 2009, FHU has been a construction zone. The University recently renovated Wallace-Gano Dining Hall and created an outdoor seating area for Lion's Pride. The University is also working on making the campus more wheelchair friendly, as steps are being replaced with ramps. In terms of aesthetics, concrete sidewalks are being replaced with stones, and the commons area has been completely redone. Overall, the grounds are much more pleasing to the eye, as sod has replaced dirt, and flowers have replaced overgrown shrubbery.
The buildings on campus vary in quality. With the exception of the apartments and Sewell, none of the dormitories were built within the last 20 years. There are no elevators (except in Sewell), and there are several dorms that are not wheelchair accessible at all. Besides the dorms, though, other buildings are in great shape. The Bulliner Clayton Visual Arts Center is probably the most state-of-the-art. There are Mac labs, art showrooms, and a back warehouse room where art students can work. The Crews-Colbert Student Activity Center is very new and very incredible; there are flat-screen TVs, two movie theaters, Playstation and Wii consoles, and pool tables. Plus, the student center is connected to KC's Coffeehouse. The library is also very accessible and useful, with a computer lab and plenty of study areas for students. Best of all, the workers are always very helpful.
