With the construction sounds of trucks backing and buckets scraping, the start of school this fall seems far away. But just like the newly asphalted drive from Deer Park Drive past Schimmel Hall to the new Clock Tower, the construction projects pave the way for a safer, more beautiful campus by m id-August.
Both Schimmel Hall and the Academic Center sport fresh coats of paint plus added stonework to enhance their architectural style. Aagard Residence Hall gained a new roof on the outside and, thanks to the ladies of Corban Connection, new carpeting on the hallways inside.
The new sidewalk in front of Schimmel and repairs to selected stairways and paths on campus complete a network of projects designed to make the College and Graduate School more accessible to students with special mobility needs.
Work on the Clock Tower is progressing , with some preliminary foundation research already done and the needed city permits in process.
The Resurrection sculpture, located just outside the Psalm Performing Arts Center, is a dramatic outdoor art project that honors former staff member Doug West. It is expected to be finished this month.
Returning students, alumni, and staff can look forward to the changes they’ll see on campus after a constructive summer—all indications of how Corban is growing and improving with God’s blessings.
