Reber's concrete construction class this week poured new sidewalks near the Hager Lifelong Education Center entrance off West Third Street. Whether designing and building the Victorian House, working on Field House construction, or landscaping and paving the Remembrance Garden – among decades of projects – students have a history of enhancing their alma mater's appearance and providing themselves (and the greater community) with long-standing proof of their hands-on prowess.
