The spectacular $101 million Physical Science Building highlights the list of major construction projects that have significantly advanced or been completed since the end of the spring semester – and have altered the look of campus.

The university will undergo a comprehensive evaluation visit Oct. 21-24 by a team representing the Commission on Institutions of Higher Education of the New England Association of Schools and Colleges. The commission is one of seven accrediting commissions in the United States that provide institutional accreditation on a regional basis. Accreditation is voluntary and applies to the institution as a whole.
