Campaign gifts of $425,000 completed eight of the 10 major projects of the current renovation plan. These include a 24/7 computer lab, a commuter lounge, a bistro-style group study area, the university archives, a digital scholarship lab, individual study carrels, the music pocket library and ADA accessible restrooms on the first floor.
In addition, because of in-house construction talent and frugal management by the Library director, the project budget was $175,000 less than the original estimate of $750,000.
“I'm a night owl, so having access to a 24-hour computer lab means that my roommates can sleep and I can get my work done. I am super pumped!"
