Ground Breaking



On March 23, construction workers broke ground and began the remodeling of the 50-year-old Residence Department by demolishing the sky bridge. Then, on June 3, the gutting of the Rita Crocker Clements Science Building began.

1. Students can see the gutted second floor of the science building from Metzger Plaza.

2. Construction workers begin laying the foundation of the “egg,” a pendulum that will occupy the new science building.

3. The new sky bridge will not only connect the Residence Department with the rest of campus but will house three floors of study rooms, music practice spaces, offices and communal areas for students.

4. On the roof of the new science building, the framework for a new idea lab on the third floor takes shape.

5. Inside the second floor of the new sky bridge, workers continue constructing the framework for the walls and installing wiring for lighting and electricity.
