Weather permitting, this year’s commencement ceremony will be held in Reeves Field. As graduating seniors step across the turf to receive their diplomas, they will say good-bye to a very different campus than the one that welcomed them as freshmen.
After over four years of planning, fundraising and construction, the Geneva College Beyond the Bend campaign is nearing completion. The notorious “S-bend” that once divided the campus has been rerouted, creating a safer, quieter environment for students and staff. The light at the 31st Street intersection now provides traffic control and a safe crosswalk for students.
Reeves Field has undergone extensive renovations, such as state-of-the-art synthetic turf, a Veterans Plaza, a new press box and an arched, wrought-iron entrance. Other improvements include new visitors bleachers, a new score board, new fencing, and a new north-end wall. And, for the first time in a decade, Geneva College's women’s softball team has a home field.
Beyond the Bend is now coming to the end of Phase II. “The renovations to Reeves Field are complete, and construction crews are currently working on a main campus entrance to welcome visitors and give the college a clearer presence in the community, says Jim Prince, Vice President of Operations. The entrance will consist of an iron archway spelling out "Geneva College" and leading to an entry boulevard and roundabout flag plaza.
“Our goal is to complete the new entrance boulevard and archway, the rotary in front of Old Main, and the road in front of Reeves Field in time for Commencement on May 16,” Prince says. “Construction on the pedestrian mall and parking lot will begin right after graduation." The projected completion date for the entire Beyond the Bend project is August 2009.
