A new campus icon gleams above Park Avenue

You are in for yet another treat when you return to campus. A new open–air pedestrian skywalk, which links the new Fred Zollner Athletic Stadium with the University Center above Park Avenue, is now complete.

The Ryan Skywalk will be dedicated during the university′s homecoming celebration on Saturday, Oct. 1, at 9:30 a.m. The Jack and Sue Shaw Press Box and Peerless Cleaners Thunder Deck also will be dedicated at that time.

Following the dedication ceremonies, the Tour de Trine Tricycle Race, a Trine student tradition, will start beneath the new skywalk.

Gifts from trustee Cliff Ryan and his wife, Sig, of Naples, Fla., and trustee Jack Shaw and his wife, Sue, of Coldwater, Mich., made the skywalk a reality.

The second phase of the project will permit additional handicap access to the stadium. For information about contributing to the project, contact Trine University senior vice president Michael Bock at bockm@trine.edu.
