Project rooms under construction

Wenkheim Countdown: 17 weeks

Wednesday, April 23rd, 2014:
It's Wenkheim Wednesday and just 17 weeks 'til we move into our new campus location!

Over last couple weeks, we have been documenting the progress of our latest addition to the Academic Resource Center, the project rooms. The framework of the rooms was started just a week and a half ago, and have already shown a great deal of progress.

Students will be able to reserve the work spaces for collaborative group projects, allowing them not to disturb other students who may be quietly working in the library.

The historic fountain is visible again and not surrounded by a protective wall of wood. The crew has moved in a giant lift to help them reach the glass ceiling to touch up the windows.
