As a building that has not undergone any major renovations since its construction in the 1930s, the Hall of Graduate Studies shows its age. From peeling paint and moldy bricks, to rusty water fountains and a musty elevator with an expired safety exam, HGS proves itself in need of renovation. The facilities consistently encounter heating and air conditioning problems. Just as striking are the basement offices and classrooms, which are burdened with dingy lighting, exposed and occasional pests. Photography Editor Maria Zepeda documents the crumbling infrastructure.
