Dear campus community,

I am pleased to report the conclusion of several key projects.

The parking lot of University Towers, the laundry room in Evans Hall and the new elevators in Stark Learning Center are now open.  

The revamped Fenner Quadrangle and new South Campus Gateway will reopen on Monday, Aug. 20. Enhancements to Stark Learning Center, including the south entrance, engineering center and interior courtyard, will also reopen this Monday. 

Although we will remove most of the fencing and open these areas up for regular use, please continue to exercise caution and observe posted signs as we finalize detail work. Please do not walk in or step on the grass, since it is especially susceptible to damage with the recent rainfall.

The construction area behind the Henry Student Center continues to be closed as we pave the parking lot. We will work to open the parking lot and the rear entrance to the Student Center over the next week (weather permitting), but construction around the building will continue into September. 

Again, please exercise caution and observe posted construction signage as we finalize this project as quickly as possible. I will continue to update you on our progress.

I want to thank you for your patience during these summer months. Please call me at ext. 4553 if you have any questions or concerns.
