THE CAGE, CAGED: An 8-foot
chain link fence surrounds the old Alumni Athletic Building, also known
as the 'Cage,' to mark the construction zone for the new Suzanne Lemberg Usdan
University Center, which is expected to be completed in August 2007.
Parts of the gym are being renovated and incorporated into the new
personnel are allowed into the fenced-off construction zone surrounding
the old Alumni Athletic Building and Fayerweather Gymnasium. A new gravel
access road will line this fence for foot traffic, handicap, emergency,
service and construction vehicles only.
South College is receiving an interior and
belfry renovation this month. Stairwells are being repainted and the
building's front entrance is closed.
Scaffolding surrounds the front side of
South College as staff from Physical Plant work on replacing the
belfry's roof and exterior railings. In August,
eight new bells will
be installed to the current 16-bell array. This will upgrade the status
of the Wesleyan bells from a chime (10-22 bells) to that of a carillon
(23 or more). (Photos by Olivia
