Something Old, Something New

Taking advantage of peaceful surroundings, students settle in to study in a third-floor space near a roof terrace in Nancy Nicholas Hall. Opened last fall, the hall represents a renovation and expansion of the School of Human Ecology building on Linden Drive. The 200,000-square-foot project incorporates significant nods to the past: features include old wood flooring and a fireplace salvaged from the colonial house (featured in On Wisconsin, Spring 2009) that once served as a lab for the home economics department and later as offices for the Department of Human Development and Family Studies.
