You have probably noticed the small cement pedestals recently emplaced behind each building. These are the foundations for our new brick and limestone signs to be constructed this spring. All buildings will have signs visible from the streets surrounding campus. The smaller cement foundation in front of the Chapel is for a campus map to identify all of our buildings from the mall area. The signs are a welcomed and long-needed addition to the campus. We have also met with architects to design a plan for enhancing the 780-foot retaining wall along College Avenue (Highway 103). Since the completion of the impressive new entryway, the wall looks even more drab than usual. Stop by my office to see the sign and wall designs. I think you will be pleased.
The funds required for these initiatives, as with all of our recent campus beautifications and construction projects, were gained through the generosity of numerous donors. No tuition dollars or money from the annual operating budget are being spent. And that makes the projects even more beautiful!
