Wenkheim Countdown: 11 weeks!

Wednesday, June 4th, 2014
We must wait only 11 more weeks until our students move into Webster's new campus, Palais Wenkheim. As the millwork continues, the Palais begins to look more and more like a university campus every day (apart from the giant machine being used for painting touch-ups in the Atrium). Today, we got a glimpse of the workers carrying in a few of the classroom desk/chairs and watched as they carried each of them up the stairs and into the classrooms. The chairs seen below are special swivel chairs which will be used in six of the university's classrooms. They will continue to move in more furniture during the upcoming weeks.
