In case you missed it, Eaton Chapel is getting a bath. Just like the World Affairs Center before it, the stately chapel is getting an environmentally friendly, low-pressure cleaning beginning this week. The historic building, with a cornerstone that will have been set 120 years ago come April 18, was last cleaned many moons ago, though no one is quite sure when. The noise will be minimal during the cleaning, which will be finished by the middle of next week.
There are several other renewal projects expected to start as soon as today, when crews will begin painting the Middle College trim from the roof line down. Painting may also begin as early as Monday on Morse-Ingersoll, before crews move off to begin wood replacement and painting on some of the college's oldest academic buildings. All these updates are being funded by parents of Beloiters, as well as alumni and friends of the college.
Stay tuned. Read more about the work, and the gifts that are making it possible, online
