Story idea

Students returning to UW-Eau Claire this fall will notice big changes on lower campus. Since students left in May, the new Davies Center was completed and opened for business, Campus School was torn down, much progress was made on construction of the new Education Building, the old Davies Center was torn down, work started on a new green space where the former student union stood and a Little Niagara Creek restoration project began. An Aug. 29 email message from Dean of Students Brian Carlisle gave students an overview of the changes and links to FAQs giving details about getting around campus, parking changes and what they can expect in the new Davies Center.
