Campus Infrastructure – Projects

Zimmerman Drive – Completion

Our new Visitors Center truly warrants a refurbishment of the portion of Zimmerman Drive from B Street to the Men’s Dome parking lot. Zimmerman Drive is a major campus thoroughfare. Hundreds of people drive this route daily, including most of our visitors arriving on campus for the first time.

Through the generous help of Bruce and Annamaria Currivan, the western portion from Hwy 1 was recently refurbished and is in fine shape. The eastern section, servicing the new Visitors Center, Women’s Dome, Dome Market, and Frats, needs repaving.

Funding needed = $150,000

Verrill & Hildenbrand Halls – Parking Lot

Through generous donations over the last few years, MUM has invested over $2 million renovating these two important buildings. Verrill Hall is primarily a classroom facility for our Computer Professionals Program and Hildenbrand Hall is a residence hall for our women students.

Both buildings are now in excellent condition. However the parking lot connecting the two buildings on the north end, which serves hundreds of commuters and residents, needs repaving.

Funding needed = $100,000

New Sidewalks & Outdoor Lighting

In our efforts to maintain high standards of campus safety and comfort, great progress has been made in the last two years. But there are still key areas that need attention:

  1. Repair the sidewalk from the Dreier Administrative Center to the Argiro Student Center.
  2. Build a new sidewalk to connect the student residence halls on the north campus to the Argiro Student Center and the main campus.
  3. Install new or refurbished lighting in several dark areas on campus.

Funding needed = $108,000

Swimming Pool

From late Spring to early Fall, the pool is used continuously by students, faculty, staff, and families — and indeed the whole community. If it is to continue to operate next summer, repairs are needed.

  1. Repairs to the pool and pool deck, and landscaping for efficient drainage = $60,000
  2. Repairs to the pool house roof and pump room ceiling = $10,000

Funding needed = $70,000
