Campus Updates

On July 13th, the campus hosted a campus wide professional development series. Below is the team building exercise. 

Through the campus wide professional development day, we also raised 1315 items for the helping houses and the career closets. Thank you to faculty and staff who donated items. Also thank you for the local businesses for donating raffle prizes. 

Ruble Arena was refinished over last week.

Wyatt is very happy to say that the large Science Hall lab is 100% set up and ready for use. Other labs will be too. Most are set up but aren’t yet ready to use Office products.
