If you have been on the Winona Campus in the past few days, you would have noticed the large signs at the front entrance are being removed. The signs are being removed in preparation for the construction of new signage at the front entrance, which are part of a more extensive remodel and upgrading of several key components as you enter the campus.
The four components to the front entrance remodel includes:
- The wall surrounding the garbage dumpsters on the west end of the Toner Center. The dumpsters are being hidden behind a new stonewall.
- The signage at the main entrance. The six pillars will be replaced with two 45-foot stonewalls, one on each side of the main entrance road.
- Upgrading the reception booth (guardhouse). It will be closer to the highway and increase in size.
- Work in the plaza. The plan calls for removing concrete and increasing the amount of grass area.
All of these changes are part of the upgrades that started with the removal of Saint Edward’s Hall and the construction of Brother William Hall. All of the work is being financed through private philanthropy from an anonymous donor.
