Construction begins on Woodland Walk, campus renovations completed

Several construction projects started last Fall have recently been completed and new projects are in progress.

Construction is underway for the new, ADA-compliant Woodland Walk that will run from the academic quad down to the Turner Lynch Campus Center and the residential buildings. Weaving through the trees, the boardwalk will feature composite-type decking, a cabled railing system, lights and multiple entrances and exits. Construction will be focused in the woodland area near Lowry Hall, Traer Hall and the TLCC.

Several residences halls have been refurbished and expanded to accommodate more students. Alumni, Jacobs and Schmidt Residence Halls have received new stairs, paint, windows and siding. 30 beds have been added by converting two apartment and underutilized space on the third floors. Goodman Hall, formerly an office building, has been entirely remodeled in to a residence hall equipped to house 50 students.

Conant Theatre received a new, metal roof, new gutters and waterproofing.

The second floor of Lupton Hall has been remodeled to include new office spaces and a kitchen area. Storage rooms on the basement level have been converted in to practice rooms for music students.

Both Hearst and Robinson Halls have received minor classroom renovations including new art studio flooring, new carpet and new paint in some areas.

Lowry Hall, the Turner Lynch Campus Center deck and bridge, Hermance Stadium and all walkways have been pressure washed.
