Improvements and renovations have begun in the Winona Campus Toner Student Center, which will continue through spring. The activity is adding functional spaces for students and creating a welcoming place for returning alumni. A new computer lab is already up and running in the lower level and a sound-proof music practice room has been added to that same area.
Thanks to the generosity of a 1966 alumnus, we have also begun work on the Merle F. Wilberding Alumni Room. This alumni heritage room will be a welcoming, interactive space that highlights key points in Saint Mary’s history—and the people who tirelessly devoted their lives to the university. It will also feature stories of and testimonials from graduates who benefited from a Saint Mary’s education and excelled because of it. The project will be ready for unveiling at this June’s Reunion Weekend.
