With the semester coming to a close, I want to wish everyone a restful break and a happy new year. This will be the final campus construction update for 2018. Our efforts within the Office of Campus Planning, Design and Construction (CPDC) will continue over the break, including on the National Veterans Resource Center, the Arch, Bird Library Suite 550, Center for Undergraduate Research in Bird Library, an accessible bathroom in the Physics Building and all-gender restrooms in the Shaffer Art Building and Crouse College, among several other projects. We will also see longer term projects starting to take greater shape in the new year.
