Check Out Roy O. West Library's New Look

September 10, 2001

September 10, 2001, Greencastle, Ind. - A summer-long renovation project that added Georgian columns and a pitched roof to Roy O. West Library is nearly finished, as you can see from the photographs accompanying this story. The newly installed six columns welcome visitors to three front doors. The new roof will also include a bell tower. Work on the library should be completed by the end of the month.

The library's architectural style now matches the look of neighboring Asbury and Harrison Halls. Next summer, the academic quad will be re-landscaped to create the Holton Memorial Quadrangle, a lasting tribute to Ruth Clark and Phillip Holton, who left $128 million to the University.

Two other projects are also taking shape. Foundation walls have been poured for an addition to Julian Science and Math Center, which will double the size of the structure. The existing space will be renovated, creating a state of the art environment for the teaching of mathematics and science, and the home base of DePauw's new national center for eLearning.

Just west of Julian, crews are busy below ground level creating the foundation of a new building that will be dedicated to the teaching of art.

You can read more about the construction that's planned, and view a 3-D video rendering of what the new Julian Center will look like, in this earlier story.
