ook What eve Done
One year after celebrating its 40th anniversary, Bishop
O'Dowd began the move toward the 21st century by
breaking ground on the long-awaited classroom addition.
ln the past four years several changes to the campus have
paved the way toward its modernization. The Bay Area
earthquake of 1989 gave first priority to completion of the
underground gas shut-off system, and O'Dowd's
emergency preparedness committee continued work on
extensive plans for disaster readiness. Continuing to make
the campus handicapped-accessible was our next priority
which meant ramping the stairs between
buildings, refurbishing bathrooms, and
building an elevator. The science labs were
entirely redesigned and completed along with
the elevator last summer. Of course, all these
changes could not be made Without a lot of
construction noise and cooperation from
faculty, staff, and students. "I call them happ
noises," replied a smiling Father Colelli,
Director of Development, whenever he was
asked, "when will these Workers be finished?"
