New office space and laboratories for the Department of Kinesiology are nearing completion. Dry wall has been hung, and built-in furniture is being installed.
The renovation will more than double the space currently available for the Department of Kinesiology, a crucial expansion given the discipline’s heavy research focus.

As the weather has improved, construction crews have been back to work at DePauw's Athletics Campus. Efforts have focused on the retaining wall behind Reavis Stadium, and on the steps from Hanna Street that extend down the hill between the tennis courts and the softball stadium.
Construction at Reavis Stadium, just beyond the dump truck above, has resumed. The steps, in the foreground lead down the hill at the end of Hanna Street.

Throughout the course of the past year, DePauw's Facilities Management Team has led a comprehensive planning process for the design of Hoover Hall, the University's new dining hall. Conversations with faculty, students, dining services staff, and a Dining Hall Steering Committee have helped ensure that the building will meet the needs of DePauw's students.
As final preparations are made, the images below -- prepared by Robert A. Stern Architects -- represent the latest conceptual renderings of the layout and design of the new hall.
