Campus Appearance Phase I

January 2004

Last academic year, the ad-hoc Campus Appearance Committee reviewed and prioritized an initial list of 34 potential projects consisting of small grounds items or issues that, if addressed, would have an immediate impact on the attractiveness of the campus.

The first 15 projects in Group I and five additional projects in Group II have now been completed, and "after" photos of the projects showing the impact are provided below..  The remaining projects in Group III, which have not been prioritized and are not listed in a particular order, are still under consideration as part of the Strategic Planning effort.
