Grove City College finishes up summer renovations

Posted: Updated:
GROVE CITY, Pa. -

When Grove City College students arrive back on campus this fall, they can expect to see some new changes. 

The college completed more than two dozen projects this summer, representing an investment of more than $7 million. The vice president of operations said the projects range from general improvements to regular upkeep of campus facilities. 

Grove City College made changes to Robert E. Thorn Field by adding new turf. Crews started working in June to replace the old artificial turf and lay the new turf, which features a brighter version of the school colors. 

Breen Student Union has also be updated this summer. Crews installed new sanitary lateral lines and put in new steps, as well as a porch, which will add more outdoor space for student activities. 

Also on the project list was Hicks Dining Hall. The entire kitchen has been replaced and a new fire alarm system has been installed. Contractors also added a new boiler to fix heating issues during the winter months.
