Message from Deb Lundahl, Director of Alumni RelationsMessage from Deb Lundahl,
Director of Alumni Relations
If you were back on campus this fall or returned for Homecoming, you were probably pleased to see the wonderful changes and updates that have taken place on campus. J.G.W. Lewis Drive is now a pedestrian walkway that meanders between the west end of campus beginning at the roundabout and continues to the east end of campus ending at Schreiner Drive. It is a beautiful improvement to campus. You would also have seen work being done on the third floor of the Carhart Science Building and enjoyed being able to take the elevator to the Dale Planetarium.  Full Story >
