Year End PLV Update
We're on the move in PLV with the near completion of the Ianniello Field House, the naming of Residence Hall B, and the opening of the Alumni Hall Café!
There are great things happening in Westchester. Below is an update on the Pleasantville Project, a collaborative initiative designed to increase the quality and attractive power of the Pleasantville Campus. The overarching goal of the project is to increase enrollment and retention in Pleasantville, ensuring that the major investments the University is making in the campus yield desired results.
The Alumni Hall Café was officially opened on Monday, November 9. The hours of operation for the café will be as followed: Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m.
Residence Hall B has a new name! All modular units have been delivered and assembled and masonry and brick work on the north wing of the newly named Elm Hall has begun. Deliveries of the brick for the building have already begun and will continue for the next few weeks. For a limited period the brick work on the east side of the building, when it occurs, will require intermittent traffic impacts to feed the scaffolding with brick and mortar mix. During this time traffic will be controlled with flag persons. Once the east side of the building is bricked up, the remaining brick and masonry work will stay inside the fenced area.
The replacement of the stairs closest to the Ianniello Field House leading from the parking lot to Lienhard Hall will continue. As a reminder, during this time there will be no access from the lower parking lot to the Lienhard Hall entrance near the student lounge. To access Lienhard from the lower parking lot, please use the middle entrance between Lienhard and Miller or the Miller entrance. The Lienhard Hall entrance by the student lounge will remain open to access the pathways leading to the center of campus.
The softball field work will continue this week. The clay installation is scheduled to begin the second week in December. Work on the parking lot by the softball field continues, with the installation of curbs, sidewalks, and binder remaining.
Hot off the presses, it’s another round of faculty media mentions! This month, they’re tackling the Russia investigation, sex trafficking legislation, and more.
