Welcome back to school, everyone. What’s new on campus? For one, Everitt Lab is under construction, as I’m sure everyone knows. A little history: Everitt was built in 1949 and named after William Everitt, who had served as the Head of the Department of Electrical Engineering. Parts of the building were actually used in 1947 for classroom space since there was an apparent dearth of available classrooms. Being under construction at that time, Everitt had no heat or electricity. Students brought lanterns, flashlights, and candles, and had class in the skeletal rooms amid the construction. According to campus history, William Everitt showed up on the first day of class with a miner’s helmet on and led the students in. Everitt is now being renovated for bioengineering.
In the spirit of New Year’s resolutions, here is a list of resources that I have found to be very helpful for studying and doing homework.
