Power of Philanthropy Beautifies VWC Campus

07-21-2016

One of the great assets of Virginia Wesleyan College is its beautiful, 300-acre campus. The College’s commitment to a quality living and learning environment is finding direction in the campus master plan process, now underway, which coincides with Virginia Wesleyan’s Pathway to Prominence strategic plan and capital campaign, extending into the year 2020. In the meantime, some of VWC’s pedestrian pathways and other sites are in need of immediate care. Through a gift from a generous donor, the College is preparing to undertake approximately $600,000 in improvements to its concrete sidewalks and steps across campus. The work, being done by Hourigan Construction, will begin the week of July 25 and continue for several weeks. The project will include power washing of Blocker Hall, Hofheimer Library, Boyd Dining Center, Monumental Chapel and Frank E. Brown Bell Tower, removing accumulated dirt and debris that has dulled the appearance of these facilities over time. “This is a good reminder of the significant difference private giving can make in the life of our institution,” said VWC President Scott D. Miller. “We thank the donor for this important contribution as we continue to enhance the campus environment for the coming academic year and beyond.”
