Thanks in part to input from many Mary Baldwin students, a major campus lighting project is underway. The walkway beside Cannon Hill, connecting lower campus to upper campus, now has new light poles with LED lights, providing a much-improved light level in that area.
According to Facilities Director Brent Douglass, the next phase of the campus lighting project will be to replace the obsolete light fixtures in the porch ceilings of Spencer Residence Hall, Grafton Library and Hunt Dining Hall, with new LED fixtures. Installation of these new light fixtures will begin next week, and when completed will significantly improve the light level in front of those three buildings on main campus. The “light-emitting diode” (LED) fixtures that are being installed are very energy efficient and require very little maintenance.
