Pennsylvania State Senator John Blake G’01 and then-Interim President Herbert B. Keller, S.J., spoke at a ceremony held on campus in May to celebrate recent pedestrian improvement projects on the University’s Commons and Estate grounds.

“We are always glad to have Senator Blake on campus and appreciate all the work he does in support of our community,” said Father Keller, who also blessed the grounds during the ceremony.

The University completed work on the Commons Monroe Avenue Area Pedestrian Circulation Improvement Project, a key gateway for prospective students and visitors. The University also celebrated improvements made to the grounds of The Estate on campus, which include a new bluestone terrace in the area immediately in front of the historic building and stone entrance steps inspired by its original design. The enhancements added contemplation walkways of bluestone and granite to the grounds.

“The project, which will certainly improve visitor and student experience, was funded in part by a $404,086 state grant through our Multimodal Transportation Fund,” Senator Blake said.
