Small trim for Alumni Center, big new view

The outside area of the Alumni Center has been under recent reconstruction in order to keep Xavier students feeling safer when traveling across Dana Avenue. Mark Hanlon, associate director for operations of the Physical

Plant, said the Alumni Center is taking these initiatives to make the outdoor atmosphere both more welcoming and secure. In addition to the installation of a new blue assistance phone in front of the building, new lighting

is being installed in the previously poorly-lit lower parking lot, making it easier to navigate and providing more security to staff and students.

Previously, when one looked out the windows from the Village Apartments, the Alumni Center was not visible because it was hidden behind several Honeysuckle

trees. The trees have now been removed, not only because they were covering the Center, but also because their roots were beginning to cause problems for surrounding buildings and nature. Honeysuckle trees were also removed from the outdoor intramural fields, on Cleneay Avenue and across from Flynn Hall. There are no plans for indoor construction any time soon.
