University of St. Francis invites people to sign a beam at the science building

JOLIET – The University of St. Francis is inviting people to put their names on the new science building under construction.

Every day this week, from noon to 2 p.m., people can sign a steel beam for the LaVerne and Dorothy Brown Science Hall.

Staff will be at the site during those times to make markers available, USF spokeswoman Katie Smith said.

The signing beam is on the south end of the construction project near Tower Hall, Smith said. The construction site is located at Wilcox and Douglas streets in Joliet.

Smith said USF is inviting alumni, students and prospective students to sign the beam, as well as others in the Joliet community who are interested.

The 35,000-square-foot LaVerne & Dorothy Brown Science Hall will be the first new building on the Joliet campus in 30 years. The plan is to open the hall for classes in the fall semester of 2017.

Those with questions can call Smith at 815-740-3625 or send her an email at ksmith@stfrancis.edu.
