A note from Vivian Langley in the Office of Development in the College of Liberal Arts

I stopped by the field last Thursday to take new pictures of the progress being made. According to the foreman, laying of the artificial turf was to begin Friday. The foundation of the storage building was also to be poured that day. It will take 9 days to complete the turf project. The last picture shows the placement of new drainage pipes by the Pavilion. Once finished, they will begin building the dressing rooms. The field is on track to be finished well before the band reports for practices with the equipment and dressing rooms to be finished around Thanksgiving. Phase II (rehearsal hall at Goodwin) will most likely begin in January once approved by the Board of Trustees in September.
