Campus Improvements Completed Over Academic Breaks 2021-22
March 30, 2022
Columbia's academic breaks are not only looked forward to by Columbia's students, but Facilities and Operations as well. While most are away, Facilities and Operations is able to perform a wide range of work as it has a smaller impact upon a less populated campus.
Similar to previous years, Facilities and Operations took advantage of winter and spring break to complete a number of projects on the Morningside campus, including pathway repairs, classrooms improvements, restrooms upgrades, and LED lighting installations. Highlights of the improvements are outlined below in alphabetical order by building.
