Webbies take the now opened passageway to lunch without having to find an alternative strenuous route. “I was excited to see this when I returned to campus,” Jordan McCray (‘24) said. “I can finally use the walkway.” As more students noticed, this magical sight evoked many similar emotions all around.

Upon their return to Webb campus after their winter break on January 3rd, students halted with surprise as they saw that the once-barricaded pathway is now open for the first time since the school year started. The walkway that runs between Jackson Library and the science building has finally reopened after it was blocked off for the construction of a new classroom in the science building.  

Before winter break, this closure made it complicated for people to go to classes and their dorms. Students and faculty had to use other walkways that were farther away from their destinations.  

Now that the walkway has been reopened, it will save a lot of time and create more ease for students and faculty to get to different locations. 

“I am very excited,” Felipe Murillo (‘25) said. “I will get to my classes easier. I won’t be late to the classes in the library anymore, so it’s convenient.”   

Even with the major inconvenience the semester-long construction caused to everyone on campus, in the long run it was all made worth it with the opening of the new classroom in the science building. Beside the new classroom’s opening, Webb installed a new pathway entrance to The Alf Museum that made the entrance to the museum more wheelchair accessible. While the pathway made people’s daily commutes more inconvenient, many felt it was a much needed update to Webb’s campus.  

Overall, the reopening of the roadway will create a more productive environment so at the very least students will not have to be forced to rush to classes. Their favorite walkway is now open for everyone to make use of. 

“I was late to almost [all my] precalculus classes, but since it is reopened, I won’t be now,” Austin Berg (‘25) said.
