Alumni and friends returning to campus will notice something new on the lawn of Russ Hall. The university officially dedicated a new Senior Walk this spring during a special ceremony that featured outstanding seniors from the past.

President Steve Scott paid tribute to the university crews who designed and built the new Senior Walk and to the Student Government Association and others for funding the project.

The project was made possible by a gift from the SGA, which funded the initial Senior Walk decades ago. The new structure, which is in the same location as the original structure, replaces a number of missing plaques from the early years and also allows space for many additional plaques.
