Daemen College has completed the third phase of campus beautification efforts with a newly installed decorative wall along the west front of college grounds, new signage and other improvements to further spruce up the campus.
The multi-tiered stone wall is an extension of one installed on campus last year along Main Street that now covers the entire front of campus and down to the college’s Getzville Road entrance by Curtis Hall. A new sign that matches the look and has the same energy efficient LED lighting as the college’s front entrance sign has also been erected at the corner of Main Street and Getzville Road along with a new sign at the Getzville entrance near the Business Building.
“By extending the wall around more of the campus perimeter and installing additional entrance signs, we’ve made Daemen more visible to the surrounding community and improved the overall appearance of our college grounds,” said Daemen President Gary A. Olson. “This project, which was made possible entirely through generous donor support, has created a stronger presence for our welcoming campus environment.”
In addition to the wall, newly installed Daemen banners are now gracing campus along Main Street and at the three key campus entrances.
The banners, which feature the college name, colors and logo, are prominently displayed on light poles at the front perimeter of campus grounds as well as at the Main Street and Getzville Road entrance ways.
Along with these enhancements, previously existing campus signage has been replaced to more clearly mark buildings and parking areas to better assist the college community and visitors with navigating the campus. The blue signs with Daemen’s globe logo include building names and designated areas for day and overnight parking. New parking lot identifications have also been assigned to further help direct drivers to available parking.
Other recent beautification efforts have included upgraded landscaping and a newly repaved parking area between Duns Scotus and the Wick Campus Center, the installation of stone benches and a fountain, planting of new trees, elimination of unnecessary campus signs, and large planters placed to deter parking in specific areas.
