Wayne State College to Dedicate Campus Commons
Wayne State will host a dedication ceremony for the college’s campus commons project at 3:30 p.m. Friday, Oct. 2. WSC President Richard Collings will speak at the event, which will include a visit by the pride of Wayne State, the Wildcats Marching Band.
The campus commons project, which was completed this summer, replaced a street that ran through the core of the Wayne State campus with a pedestrian walkway bordered by native plants and trees. The commons area runs from the west end of campus beginning at the roundabout on J.G.W. Lewis Drive to the east side of campus terminating at Schreiner Drive.
The project costs included the construction contract of $643,000, design at $54,000 and other items at $4,000. Funding for the project came from the Wayne State Foundation ($256,000), the college’s cash reserve for capital projects ($350,000) and WSC special projects ($101,000).
The Wayne State Foundation extends its sincere appreciation to the following donors for their generosity in supporting the campus commons project: Dolores M. Troup; Mike and Coleen Riedmann; Al and Krissy Riedmann; Al and Shirley Riedmann; Mike and Vicki Bousquet; Irv Hoffbauer; Deborah and Bruce Lundahl; Don Hickey and Connie Clark; Beverly and Gary Buhrman; Dorothy and Norman Weber; Douglas and Cindy Christensen; and Norman Small II and Lee Sherry.
The public is invited to attend the dedication of this beautiful addition to the college grounds. Please gather at the entrance to the commons walkway at the roundabout on J.G.W. Lewis Drive.
