A zebra doesn't change its stripes, but they do need to be refreshed! The burgundy-on-black zebra-stripe facade on our iconic McCormick Tribune Campus Center is being renewed after 20 years. The project includes an elastomeric acrylic base coat (first photo) topped with an elastomeric acrylic burgundy stencil coat. Second photo shows before (left) and after (right). Third photo shows the stencil. Credit to Combined Roofing Services LLC, and Holibard and Root, for their work on this project.

Lakeshore Recycling Systems: Innovative Recycling Services

When we first started our recycling program with Lakeshore Recycling Systems (LRS) in 2016, we had a 6.78% trash diversion rate (recycling stream) with 1,193.41 tons of trash going to landfills.
For 2020 YTD we have a 39.58% trash diversion rate with 432.12 tons of trash going to landfills, a reduction of 63%. We have also dramatically improved our reuse/repurpose efforts of furniture, etc. so that stays out of the trash stream. Here is a video from LRS that we thought we'd share! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lDhj1920TlI&feature=emb_err_woyt

The Chicago Department of Transportation’s (CDOT) project to repave State Street between 31st and 35th Streets has begun. While crosswalk area signs are still in place, many of the crosswalk lines have been temporarily removed from the street, which may result in drivers being less aware of crosswalk locations. Pedestrians, please be aware of the change in conditions while this work continues and exercise caution when crossing the street.

Hi all, my friends and I have taken a small initiative towards mental health awareness (Mental Polaroids) and are searching for building a team.
So, please fill out the attached form in the link if you’re interested in helping us stand together and spread awareness and voice.

Who are We?
Mental Polaroids is a group of like-minded students who have taken the initiative to spread awareness of mental health within the student community.

Please note:- This is not any Club or Organization; this is a media platform where we will be producing a podcast, videos, and other means of content to promote mental health awareness.

https://lnkd.in/e6nfw4A
We appreciate any help you can provide.
The Chicago Department of Transportation (CDOT) will be repaving State Street between 31st and 35th on the Mies campus starting Monday, October 14.

Any pertinent details including walkway closures will be communicated to the community through Illinois Tech Today, https://facilities.iit.edu/news-and-updates, and/or the IIT Facilities page.
