Welcome Center Gets New Look
As part of a larger effort to “freshen” up the Welcome Center in Lyle Hall for prospective students and their parents, the University has been working on the exterior of the building with additional plans in place for the interior this semester.
“First impressions matter,” said Brian Hazlett, vice president of enrollment management at Millersville. “We want to make sure that we offer a pleasing atmosphere for anyone visiting campus. We have a beautiful campus, and we wanted to make sure that a prospective student’s first stop in Lyle matched the rest of their campus visit.”
Over winter break, the large exterior graphics were added to the windows at the front of the building. The graphics are actually a perforated window film, which has a pattern of small holes, allowing graphics to be highly visible from the outside, while appearing invisible when viewed from the inside.
Signage has been created for the building, a bike rack was added and power washing has been done.
Coming up this spring, there will be new landscaping, and the plan is to replace a large portion of the interior artwork and messaging. In addition, the elevator and stairwell are scheduled to get a fresh coat of paint.
