A worker paints a column in Jesse Auditorium as part of a $1 million renovation. The auditorium's 1,732 seats were also replaced.

John Murray, building coordinator for Jesse Hall, said the last major renovation was about 15 years ago, but it's been more than 30 years since the 1,732 seats were replaced. The project cost about $1 million, Campus Facilities spokeswoman Karlan Seville said.
