“Spring Work” is just the beginning

by Joshua | March 14, 2012

Today is Wednesday, the midpoint of the week after Spring Break. We know our students had a great time last week ’cause we saw their Facebook photos and heard the stories.

We also have our own stories from spring break week, but they don’t involve lounging on the beach or dancing the night away. No, last week was Spring Work week for Lynn University. There were several projects happening on campus while everyone was away.

One highlight was the work on the Military Trail entrance (shown in this Channel 5 news story below).

The new entrance, complete with a new stop light, should be ready for the first day of Fall 2012 classes, and I’m sure it will be well used during the Oct. 22 presidential debate we’ll be hosting.

The water fountain in Schmidt got a make over. Workers resealed it and repaired water damage. To do this they had to erect three stories of scaffolding. They put it up in just a few minutes. Pretty impressive.

Various landscaping projects were also going on, including the planting of several new trees on campus.

And of course, the final stages of work on the Remembrance Plaza were in full swing last week. It is essentially complete now, and we’ll be hosting hundreds as well as several media outlets for the unveiling ceremony this Friday from 10 a.m. to noon. The whole campus is invited to pay respect to those who lost their lives while in the service of others.

This work is all part of Lynn’s approved master plan. If you have not had a chance to read about our plans, you should check out this story.

So there you have it. Spring break was the beginning of our Spring work and we keep on going.
