President James Evans for Lindenwood University said that while there are no immediate plans to create a sustainability center on campus, they are working with the LSGA and LU Sustainability Alliance to reduce the campus’ carbon foot print.

“We are working with both the LSGA and the LU Sustainability Alliance to review our present recycling program, with an eye towards expanding it somewhat,” said President Evans.

In spring 2013, Lindenwood University opened a prayer room for the Muslim students. “Providing a designated place for Muslims to pray was a big step but there is undoubtedly much that can still be done,” said Matthew J. Aragon Bruce, assistant professor of religion.

The attempted sexual assault that was reported by a female student a few weeks ago called Lindenwood’s security into action. Junior Hope McCoy believes the university made a strong effort to inform students. “I think they are handling it well,” McCoy said. “They have informed the student body about being safe and what has happened.”

During the late ‘90s, a plan was put into place that at the time was the largest construction project in LU’s storied history.

The plan ultimately included two residence halls and what came to be known as the Spellmann Center.Ben Blanton, LU’s construction partner, was the first chosen to have one of the two dormitories dedicated under his name. The second went to a family, the Guffeys.

The fence was constructed Feb. 21 to prevent injury to students and faculty climbing the Spellmann Center brick staircase.
