President's Annual Report
BUILDING FOR THE FUTURE
In the College's Strategic Plan, we identified the need to upgrade some facilities, as well as identify plans for new construction. The dedication in October 2003 of our new North Quad renovation and expansion will cap a busy summer of construction. The North Quad project provides much-needed additional living quarters, as well an overall improved residential experience. We continue to move toward Phase I of a new Athletic and Recreation Center, with an anticipated start in May 2004, pending final approval by the Board of Trustees. The new facility will provide gymnasium and fitness space, and is possible through a lead donation from Trustee Gary Biszantz '56. Construction begins this fall on a new building on Claremont Boulevard for advancement staff offices, and Collins Dining Hall dining areas will undergo renovation in the summer. We are also beginning discussion on a proposed new campus center. Torrey Sun, vice president for student affairs, leads the committee, which includes students, staff, faculty, and trustees.
