It's construction time again at Williams--now in full view of the east-facing windows of the department's new home, Hollander Hall. The president and trustees approved reactivation of plans for the construction of the new college library and IT center.
What that means for ANSO, aside from construction noise, is a view that on July 31, 2011 looked like this:
To the left you can make out the bones of Seely House, which is being disassembled and mostly recycled. Just behind it is Kellogg House, former home of CES, which will become a new, improved, green CES in a few years. To the right is Stetson Hall, the original 1923 part of which will be conserved and renovated for the new library.
If you're interested in the project's progress, you can follow it from a live webcam.
There's more to Williams than construction, though, and this issue of ANSONews tries to give you a sense of what ANSO's ongoing contribution to Williams life has been over the past year.
