Welcome Back From the President: Making Connections
amy gutmann
The walk from the President’s house to my College Hall office takes me across a vital connecting link for our campus: the Class of 1949 Generational Bridge, a 160-foot extension of Locust Walk built in 1970. This summer it was necessary to detour down Walnut Street while the bridge was closed for resurfacing and refurbishment. As is so often the case, it is not until a connection of this kind goes missing that you appreciate just how important it is! The Generational Bridge and Locust Walk are now better than new, and our campus more conducive than ever to those serendipitous outdoor connections that create a truly vibrant academic community.
