Crews to Cut through First-Floor Wall of EAB during Holiday Break

December 21, 2016

When students, faculty, and staff return from the holiday break, Room 141 in the East Academic Building (EAB) will no longer exist. Instead, there will be a temporary wall where the door used to be. Behind that wall, work crews will be building the new connecting corridor that will link the EAB to the new Interdisciplinary Science Building. That new connection will be opened up immediately after the completion of the ISB, turning Room 141 – one of the least used spaces in the EAB – into Room 151 – one of the busiest spaces in the building.
