      Dean College Summer Facilities Update


       Over the summer, most students may be gone, but crews are working diligently to make updates to the Dean College campus.

      The main project is the Grant Field project – the replacement of the grass field with artificial turf. This will allow students to play sports outdoors during more of the year. Additionally, crews are replacing both the dance floor in the lower Performing Arts Studio and the flooring in the Guidrey Center. Both the athletics and dance programs will greatly benefit from these projects.

      Other maintenance projects will take place around campus during the summer months as well, which will lead to a more comfortable and green environment for students, faculty and staff alike.
