Completed Sidewalks

With input from the Student Government Association, the University completed a sidewalk extension initiative over the summer. Brick sidewalks now wrap around the entire main campus ensuring the safety of pedestrians and cyclists.

Engineering Facilities

The Engineering Annex facility houses the School of Engineering’s sophomore, junior and senior class labs, as well as a state-of-the-art waterjet cutter (a tool capable of cutting a variety of materials using a high-pressure jet of water) and space for student collaboration.
