I originally built the SL version about 2 years ago. Since my building skills have greatly evolved since then, and the ballroom (not included in the original SL build) has been talked about as a potential in-world event location where real-life events can be streamed, it seemed as good a time as any for an overhaul.
I should have taken some "before" screenshots before demolishing the original, but I didn't think about it until it was too late. I did manage to dredge up a few oldies though, so it should give a pretty good idea of it.
So with the help of the delete button and some texture creation/overhauling in Photoshop, here's a peek at some of the improvements made.
The couches are menu-driven with 9 different sit/sleep poses. It's more likely to find a snoozing student than a conscious one in the actual MU.
I am still making changes and additions as I have time. Part of the building is still empty. Jon and I have been talking about getting some art from the art department students to showcase around it, so we'll see if we can make that come to fruition.
