Construction on Campus

DSCF1213 Don’t worry, this isn’t any construction you’ll see when you get back.  Its stuff that Physical Plant is working on now so you can enjoy them come late August.

The picture to the left is of the new sidewalk that is being poured by Parsons and McCoy to replace the parking area used by construction workers.  That means no more walking in the road now.

Also, there is some work going on inside McDonough and Erwin Hall.  McDonough received donations for a renovation and purchase of digital presentation equipment.  Room 205 has been all re-done, with new paint, more narrow desks and chairs (so you can actually walk to your seat now, instead of navigating the maze of chairs in a narrow space), power and data hook-ups for every seat, and a new projector and smartboard combo for presentations and classes.

Erwin Hall saw its bathrooms enter ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) compliance on the first floor, as the college continues the process of becoming 100% ADA compliant.
DSCF1218Lastly, the wooden stairway from the rear of the Dyson-Baudo Recreation Center to the McCoy/Mills parking lot has been torn up. I’m not sure if this will be replaced, rebuilt, or totally demolished. I guess we’ll see when we get back. However, this is a welcome sight, as the rubber material they had covered the stairs with had begun to come off and become a hazard for those who used it.

Off campus, look for a completely rebuilt Front Street, which saw all of the bricks pulled out and replaced, with a focus placed on pedestrian safety.  Speed tables now lead up to raised crosswalks, and flashing lights can be triggered to alert motorists to mid-block crossings.  Washington Bridge construction continues, so if you use State Route 7, you’ll have to use the provided detour, which sends you up or down Interstate 77.

If you are a student, staff, or faculty member of Marietta College, time is running out for you to pick up your discounted tickets. $19 tickets are available through May 22nd in the Auxiliary Services office (McDonough Room 204). Supposedly it will be a good show, but I’m not a big country fan, so I would not know. The concert is June 1st in the Dyson-Baudo Recreation Center.

Students Abroad Blog About Experiences

Marietta College students are studying abroad this  semester, but with a new added twist.  Students that are part of the McDonough Center for Leadership are spending the semester writing about their experiences while they learn at schools around the world.  In total, there are nine students blogging about their stay in the country they have chosen.  While some have already made the trip over and began coursework, others are still waiting to begin their adventure.  For a list of all the bloggers and links to their sites, keep reading after the jump.
