Other changes to campus this year

The new residence hall, parking garage and dining center at Selleck aren't the only new things greeting students, faculty and staff at UNL this fall. Here's what else is new:

• Construction continues on the Tom and Nancy Osborne Athletic Complex and Memorial Stadium expansion, which caused the demolition of Schulte Field House and the Baumann Building and has permanently closed Avery Avenue as a through street.

• Remodeling is done at Avery Hall, now home to the Mathematics and Computer Science departments and the City Campus portion of the Statistics Department. It served for decades as the site of the College of Journalism and Mass Communications and the departments of Chemical Engineering and Geography.

• The UNL Police Department has moved into its new headquarters on the bottom level of the 17th and R Parking Garage.

• Remodeling continues at the Hardin Center at 33rd and Holdrege streets, which will serve as home for the School of Natural Resource Sciences, and the Carpenter Building, 1800 N. 33rd St., home of Nebraska Educational Telecommunications.

• Many outdoor recreation areas have been refurbished and expanded. Fleming Fields Recreational Sports Park at 32nd Street and Leighton Avenue features four softball diamonds, restrooms and concession and parking areas that opened in March, and two grass multipurpose fields to be available in the spring. In addition, improvements at the 17th and Vine streets recreation area include refurbishing of its eight tennis courts, two new basketball courts, and two sand volleyball courts that will be completed this semester. Synthetic turf is being installed on two of the multipurpose fields.
