Who knew how much destruction preceded revitalization? Work is seriously underway toward the new and improved Eddy Hall. The third-floor Eddy faculty are troopers, braving electrical outages, no A/C (how did that happen?), and dust. The Ingersoll faculty are also troopers with no A/C but free of dust with working electricity, as far as we know.

Watch this space for updates. Eddy’s gonna be great!

News of Note the Week of May 19

Eddy on the Move

 

Eddy faculty and staff are on the move! The Little Guys crew will spend the week transferring years of files and accumulated furniture from faculty, offices, and classrooms in the east and south sides of Eddy. At one point there were at least 13 movers at the same time at Eddy and Ingersoll. It’s quite the project, and we are optimistic that in 15 to 18 months we’ll have a thoroughly “revitalized” space for teaching and learning. In the meantime, watch for updates on this blog and on our website.
