Wenkheim Countdown: 16 weeks left!

Wednesday, April 30, 2014:
It's another Wenkheim Wednesday! We're only 16 weeks away from our move-in and we hear developments will be taking place very quickly from here.

Over the past week, the crew has installed nearly all of the building's classroom and office doors and windows. To give a modern look to our neoclassical campus, the facility features a number of rooms with floor-to-ceiling windows, which are likely to be glazed once finished. Other recent changes include more carpeting and installing covers to the heating/cooling systems.

Wenkheim Countdown: 17 weeks

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.

Wenkheim Countdown: 18 Weeks

With just 18 weeks to go, we're getting even closer to moving into our beautiful, new campus, Palais Wenkheim.

Since last week there has been a great deal of progress going on in the Atrium. They have finished up painting the walls, cleaning up the floors and tearing down the remaining scaffolding. 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.
