Construction in full swing as fall comes to a close

It may be noisy and inconvenient, but construction on the Davenport campus is entering a very exciting stage. For the most part, the demolition is over and the construction is underway. We can see the R. Richard Bittner Athletic & Recreation Center take shape before our eyes!

It is a pleasure to share the progress with those that had such a huge role in planning and approving the projects. Palmer Board Chairman Trevor Ireland, D.C., was recently on campus and had a chance to see how far we’ve come since his last visit during Homecoming in August. He was impressed to see the strides we’ve made since then.

Construction on the north end of campus is coming along nicely, too. We’ve made steady progress on the retaining wall, and the tower is starting to take shape. If you haven’t been to campus recently, please stop by and see our progress. If you’re too far away to visit, click on the “construction webcam” button at the right to see our daily progress.

It’s so exciting to see the daily changes on the Davenport campus as we continue the north site and Alumni Auditorium construction projects. The photo shows demolition work on the Alumni Auditorium, which will be transformed into the R. Richard Bittner Athletic & Recreation Center by next January.
