Enhancements for the south end of campus

Q:  Melisa of Career Services asked what was going on at the south end of campus—is this part of some initiative to add better entry spaces to SU?

A:  Why, yes, as a matter of fact it's just that and more. Sari Graven, director of program and resource development in Facilities, confirms that much work has been done recently to better identify the south end of campus, enhance way-finding and improve security. Included in the upgrade are three new security cameras, six new building signs, more landscaping and hardscaping, new portal gates, a new staircase leading from Chardin to the sidewalk that parallels Logan Field and a new campus map. Graven says the enhancements are intended to bring a “better sense of identity to the south end of campus and to improve the safety of our students and faculty."
