Students and faculty in the School of Engineering Technologies’ Construction & Architectural Technologies Division aren’t letting a pandemic distance them from institutional service projects, both near main campus and at the Schneebeli Earth Science Center south of Williamsport. Garret L. Graff, assistant professor of building construction technology, allowed his students to come up with different designs for a footbridge linking the ESC parking lot with a nearby recreational area that was recently and substantially improved. General Services picked the winning design and delivered the building materials, and Graff and his class worked their practical magic. Instructor Franklin H. Reber Jr. and students then completed the scene with concrete sidewalks and landings. Reber’s class was also busy closer to home, laying the groundwork for expansion of the college’s Army ROTC headquarters along First Street.
