Everyone knows about the construction that’s been going on around campus for what seems like forever. The roads are closed, there are detours everywhere, and we’re all eager for the construction to be finished. What many people may not know is that inside of our buildings some things have been updated as well.
Seven classrooms in Ward Beecher were renovated this summer as part of Instructional Space Upgrades. New flooring, paint, ceiling tile, and light fixtures were the major changes in these rooms.
Renovations in Moser 3275 have made the new home of the physics research lab for Drs. Andrews and Oder.
The Clarence R. Smith Mineral Museum on the first floor of Moser Hall has also been updated, most importantly with brand new lighting installed throughout.
Campus architects are currently in the design stages of a renovation that will impact Ward Beecher over the summers of 2017 and 2018 and will be developing another project which will focus on various laboratory spaces on campus, although it is not yet known which colleges or buildings will be impacted.
