New Wood on Second Floor
Workers have put many hours into the old creaky flooring, prying up old boards and installing the new. Within the next week they will sand and stain the new wood, and expect to have their 1800 square foot project completed by the end of the week.
The Public Interest Design Institute provides training on how to become proactively engaged in this rapidly growing field. Learning objectives include finding new clients and learning about new fee sources & structures. Participants will become certified in this emerging public practice and may earn continuing education credits.

Third Floor Tidbits Weigel Library
New books have continued to arrive in Weigel Library throughout the summer. You can keep updated on collection additions by clicking the “New Resources” link on the Weigel Library webpage (http://www.lib.k-state.edu/architecture).
Better yet, you can see the recent acquisitions on the “New Resources” shelf in Weigel. Then you can check them out!
It’s time for another round of scavenger hunting! Our previous winner found the tag in Weigel Library inside the cover of Bird’s Eye View, on top of the new oversized book shelf! Think Led Zeplin.
As always, Good Luck & Happy Hunting
