WEBER STATE UNIVERSITY The Signpost FRIDAY NOVEMBER 21, 2008 VOLUME 79 ISSUE 44 Bell Tower Plaza rededication Ribbon-cutting ceremony held at plaza Thursday By Heidi LeBaron news editor The Signpost In the eight years Rob Ferguson has been attending Weber State University, the campus has transformed. When he started working on a BS degree in radiology, the central campus looked like a sea of concrete where dead trees lined the pathway to the library. In 2003, a reconstruction project began to improve the campus look. Buildings and landscaping took shape; ultimately the Stewart Bell Tower plaza was closed. Rock and water features were brought in and, after eighteen months, the project hit a milestone. Ferguson was in the crowd Thursday when University President F. Ann Millner and former-President Dean Hurst rededicated the Bell Tower plaza. "I like it, " Ferguson said. "It looks a lot better. This whole landscaping thing beautiful. " Millner said the Bell Tower has become an icon for the institution and a center of campus happenings. "This has really become the core of this campus, " Millner said. Hurst agreed as he addressed the gathered crowd."That Bell Tower has served as an icon that has weathered the weather well, " Hurst said. Millner said the new landscaping incorporates the surrounding environment. "Really, it's reflective of what we all love about living in Utah, " Millner said. "What a wonderful opportunity to have that in the center of our campus. The plaza was opened See Bell Tower page 6 "I don't think any of us believed we would be able to accomplish in five years what's happened when you look at the total on this campus. This is the centerpiece of that in many ways" F. Ann Millner, WSU President WSU ROTC Major Keith J. McVeigh rappels down the Bell Tower during the opening ceremony for the renovated project. Purple smoke filled the air as the ribbon was cut once McVeigh hit the stage.
