On Friday, the final steel beam for Williams Hall was lowered into place. Following long-established construction tradition, an evergreen tree and and American flag were fastened to the beam before it was raised. And since this is a College of Wooster project, it seemed only appropriate to flank the tree with another banner as well.

Faculty and staff have been relocated to temporary offices, the building has been emptied of its contents, fences are up, and construction trailers are in place. In just a few more weeks, the demolition of Mateer Hall will begin, clearing the way for construction of the Ruth W. Williams Hall of Life Science.
