Construction began two weeks ago on the ad kiosk between the Campus Center and the Brown Library.
Plans for the structure were announced nearly five months ago. The completed structure will serve as a medium for students to advertise groups and events, since the administration prohibited fliers and sidewalk chalk on campus, beginning last October.
Scot Colley, associate director of Physical Resources, said the construction students see now is “the foundation and the beams to hold the message boards.”
The purple beams in front of the Campus Center are arches that form the concrete block used as a foundation.
Jerry Garza, supervisor of campus construction, said plans clearly are laid out for the remainder of the construction process.
“We’ve got the arch built and we still need a roof,” he said. “Depending on the weather, we’ll get as much done as we can … but we hope to get it done in a couple of weeks.”
A different builder will hang the signs for the bulletin boards where students can post fliers, and the structure should be completed in several weeks, Garza said.
Colley said the administration has not yet faced any obstacles during the process, and students can expect a fully functioning kiosk in fall 2009.
