The construction work that has started of the university’s Jepson Science Center has recently caused a multitude of problems for students and faculty. Sections of College Avenue and the surrounding areas of Jepson are cloaked in industrial fabric and lined with construction cones. The renovations to the building and nearby areas are expected to continue for an approximated 18 to 24 months.

Most students who belong to the UMW community have passed by the Jepson Science Center before. This tends to be a heavily trafficked area on campus due to the science general education requirement, and several residence halls being stationed nearby. When a strange object was erected outside of Jepson, some students had questions about the new structure.

Work on the six-year plan for the University of Mary Washington is underway by the Board of Visitors. Allocations of funding strongly influence the campus, as well as tuition. The committee had its first meeting on March 22. UMW has three projects underway that will potentially have a major impact on the operating budget. The current projects are the Jepson Science Center expansion, a new parking deck and the renovation of Seacobeck Hall.
