To support a safer, pedestrian-friendly roadway for students at Anderson University, the university will start a $2 million project on Fifth Street and College Avenue during the summer.

The major portion of the project will be to widen and add a median on Fifth Street, said Joe Royer, executive director of Facilities and Property Management for AU. The road will be similar to University Boulevard after the construction.

“That’s the general intent,” he said. “It won’t be exactly the same, but it will have the same feel as University Boulevard.”

The temptation of college snow days

A few inches of snow can be a minor annoyance or an excuse to skip classes for Anderson University students.

Freshman Henry Schwartz said he made it to his 8 a.m. class Wednesday, but his roommate took the morning off.

“It’s not so bad,” said Schwartz, a Michigan native. “We usually get a lot more snow where I’m from.”

Even a small snowfall can challenge the most studious Raven early in the morning when he’s just rolled out of bed, Schwartz said.

“I’m sure plenty of people skipped.”
