1997-98 a busy year for campus construction

By Francine Tyler

The campus will hum with construction activity later this school year, as a number of major projects get under way in the upcoming spring and summer.

Nine projects, including a new fitness center, apartments for students, improvements to the arts facilities, and a graduate commons and expanded bookstore, are under way or are scheduled to start toward the end of the fiscal year.

Frank Zwart, assistant vice chancellor for physical planning and construction, attributes the increased construction activity to growth in UCSC enrollments over the last several years. "It's exciting," said Zwart. "We have the opportunity to make some very fine improvements to the campus."

The following is a list of construction projects that are currently under way or are scheduled to begin this academic year.
