Thanks to the generosity of anonymous benefactors, Saint Mary’s continues to make changes to its Winona Campus entrance area. These gifts have allowed us to construct Brother William Hall, tear down Saint Edward’s Hall, and remove the hill in the plaza. This summer, the project has continued with the construction of new entrance signage, an enclosure wall around the trash receptacles at the Toner Student Center loading dock, and additional work in the plaza. The reception booth near the entrance will also be upgraded.
