A Brief History of Wright Quad

After the Spring 2023 semester, Wright Quad and its dining hall closed for renovations. Planning on reopening for the Fall 2025 semester, the interior is going through a major overhaul. The project features replacing fire, electrical and plumbing systems, as well as updating rooms and public spaces.
