Psychology Bldg Roof Project Moves Ahead

The project to reroof the Psychology Building is moving forward with the installation of the new skylights. The ATRIUM has been closed while these are being installed, and will be closed for a week afterward so it can be thoroughly cleaned. We hope that the Atrium will be reopened on Monday, June 22.
