Students living on the West Campus this year have told me, in great detail, what it is like to be living in a construction zone. The heavy equipment, which starts operating punctually at 8 a.m., ensures no problems waking up for an early class. But sleeping in after a late night of studying is simply not an option. Unfortunately, noise, dust and disruption are facts of current West Campus life.
Partly in response to the stress caused by the construction, we have put the West Campus project on an accelerated schedule so that it should be completed two years earlier than originally planned.
