"Brand new snow on the Mansueto, and brand new windows on Eckhardt Center. Notice how Eckhardt’s windows will reflect all the campus architecture on 57th Street; depending on where you stand, you’ll see a different view."—Elizabeth Station
"Make no little plans. They have no magic to stir men’s blood and probably will not themselves be realized."
UChicago trivia—The original Crerar Library, designed by Burnham, opened April 1, 1897, in the Marshall Field building (shown). In 1981 Crerar Library’s directors agreed to consolidate its collection with UChicago’s science collection in a new building on campus, which opened September 10, 1984.
