The construction schedule calls for renovations to Beal Gymnasium to begin after the 2012-2013 basketball season and be completed prior to the 2013-2014 season. While this schedule secures space for the basketball season, it leaves us without a back-up space for Graduation 2013. SMCC has graciously offered the use of their gym in case of inclement weather for the 2013 Graduation. A huge thank you to SMCC for their generosity.
