The President's Post
    Each of the past three summers we have completed a multitude of construction, renovation, and beautification projects designed to improve our campus. This coming summer will be no exception. We continue to enhance Ozarks in exciting ways, and I want to provide a brief update of this summer’s plans.
   According to our contractors, Walker Hall remains on track for completion in August. We will not schedule formal classes in Walker Hall until spring semester 2003 and will use the fall semester to move the Education Division, the Communications Program, faculty, staff, and equipment into the new location. And what a state-of-the-art, magnificent facility it will be!
   We will resurface the MacLean parking lot and pave areas that have never been paved before. That is a long-needed improvement at MacLean. At the Hurie Athletic Fields, we will asphalt the basketball court and the tennis courts, two areas that are currently unrecognizable from neglect.
   The exterior of the Mabee Physical Education Building is going to receive a facelift during the summer. Paint, trim, repair, and landscaping will help to bring Mabee up to the appearance of our other buildings. The preliminary plans look great, and I think we will all be pleased with Mabee’s transformation.
   The Seay Student Center is finally going to be re-carpeted (hurrah!) upstairs and downstairs. Downstairs the Eagle’s Nest will be expanded and new furniture will be purchased. With the chic Ozarks Bookstore, the refurbished Eagle’s Nest, and a more attractive and relaxing lounge area, the downstairs of Seay will be a classy and comfortable student gathering place.
  And the beat goes on!

Dr. Rick Niece
President
