Cooling Area
----------------------------------
Dear Summer Residents,

Over the next few days when we have this high heat the cafeteria will
be open as a place to go and get cool. It should be open by 9:45 am
today, and will close with the final rounds of the nightwatch. I hope
this makes surviving the next few days a bit more comfortable!

Construction Update
------------------------------------
Dear Members of the ANTS Community,

As you can see, construction on the Wilson Chapel is moving right
along. FYI, we are currently on schedule and on budget! Below are some
things you can anticipate in the coming weeks:

1. We continue to hope to be under roof by Thanksgiving and closed in
by Christmas (this will save us some heating and covering costs).
2. In the coming weeks you will see that we will continue to erect the
infrastructure. This will mean concrete foundation & forms (big trucks),
which will then be followed by steel beams (big trucks and noise) and
then limestone and eventually the glass. Once we are under a roof we
will have fewer big trucks and far less noise. There will be many
workman on the campus, but they will be tradesmen working on the
interior.
4. The steel work will be well along by the time classes start, but
there will still be some riveting (i.e. "rat-a-tat" noise) going on for
the first two weeks of classes (we expect to finish this by Oct 1).
5. We will be putting in a new gas line to service Noyes and the new
Chapel in the coming weeks. This will mean digging (via backhoe) on the
road from about Herrick House up in front of the president's house, and
then across the quadrangle in front of the library and down the quad in
front of Sturtevant, Noyes, Kendall, and so forth to the chapel. This is
expected to be completed well before the start of classes, although the
final repair to the surface may take awhile longer.

Enjoy the final weeks of summer,

Nancy
