NORMAL — More than 500 people have left their mark — literally — on the revitalization project at Illinois State University’s Bone Student Center.
The university teamed with general contractor CORE Construction this week to give people a behind-the-scenes look at part of the $33 million project that began in September. They also had an opportunity to sign their names on a concrete column with a permanent marker.
The first phase of the project is expected to last through February. Erin Watts, assistant director of event management, dining and hospitality, said the event was scheduled now because “a lot of seniors are graduating and we wanted them to be a part of it.”
As construction proceeds, the names on the column will be covered. However, Bill Leggett, director of event management, dining and hospitality, said the university plans to take pictures of the names “to capture the memory of it.”
