New and returning students arrived on campus this past month to witness Eastern's impressive new entrance. Nancy Tinker, director of facilities management and planning, said the entrance was designed to coordinate with the building and wayfinding signs seen across campus. "If you notice, the black wrought iron that spans the sidewalks has the same shape and design -- with the notch at the top -- that the building signs have. There are also hints of the clock tower design in the boundary monument wrought iron. Finally, we have an entrance that reflects the significance of the institution. When you get to the entrance, you know you have arrived someplace important!"
