Several projects were begun or completed across campus during Winter Break. A dynamic new installation on the second floor of Wilson Hall was completed outside the Offices of Continuing Education and Graduate Studies – part of an ongoing campuswide visual branding project. Wilson Hall got a fresh coat of paint and in Fox Commons you’ll find new sofas. Construction is also underway on a new spray booth on the sixth floor of Sarah Peter Hall.
