Dear Parents and Families of the Class of 2018,
We’re excited to welcome you and your sons and daughters to campus in less than a month. This has been a summer of far greater activity than most with renovations and construction projects seemingly at every intersection. Several will be of interest to you and your students. The West Union project to be completed in spring of 2016 will be state-of-the-art dining and social space to West Campus and the Perkins Library project will complete a multi-phase enhancement to our complex of library buildings. We’re renovating the historic Page Auditorium and hope to break ground this spring on a new Student Health and Wellness building. These are exciting improvements that will enhance your students’ experiences, but they also bring occasional inconveniences, which we’ll work hard to minimize. If you want to track some of the details on these projects, go here (http://fmd.duke.edu/guidelines/active/).
