The Campus Operations “to do” list ran longer than most this summer.

Staffers and contractors were busy with improvements to residence halls, academic buildings and grounds, said David Grzybowski, director of campus operations.

Among the projects, they replaced the lights and poles
above Frank Bailey Field, renovated the cupola atop West College, and replaced roofs on
Webster House and Alumni Gym.

At ground level and below, workers installed a sprinkler
system in Library Field around the Nott Memorial and did steam line and sidewalk
replacement to the south and west of Science and Engineering and Bailey Hall. New
sidewalks and stairs now replace former dirt paths west of Psi Upsilon and between Webster
and Davidson.
