| For those of us on campus, there is no mistaking that construction is nearing completion on the Suzanne Lemberg Usdan University Center.
As is the nature of a project of this scope, the building is continuing at a rapid pace in this final month in order to complete the building for new students arrival on August 28. Leading up to arrival day, quite a bit of detail work is being completed. Over the next two weeks, several offices including the Usdan Center staff, University Events and Scheduling, Student Activities and Leadership Development, Wesleyan Station, the Box Office, the Wesleyn Student Association, the Cardinal Technology Center (formerly the Computer Store), the University Store (Broad Street Bookstore annex), and Wesleyan Dining by Bon Appetit will be making the move to their new spaces in Usdan.
Wyllys paving will be completed on or around August 15. Site work will continue around the building into September including tree and grass planting
The Taste of the Usdan Marketplace will be held from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. August 31. With new students enjoying a picnic on the Center for the Arts green, staff and faculty are invited to visit Usdan for lunch in the Marketplace. Show your faculty/staff ID and receive a free boutique beverage with lunch.
