Faulkner University Breaks Ground on New Entrance
Faulkner University broke ground on a new entrance earlier this month. The new entryway, facing the Atlanta Highway will service all traffic in and out of the university. The project is expected to be completed by August 1.
The current entrance is set back from the road and obscured by trees, according to Faulkner University President Mike Williams. The renovated entrance, along with newly buried power lines, will serve to highlight the university and improve the Atlanta Highway corridor.
“Symbolically, our front entrance is a gateway for every prospective student who comes to the campus. Each high school senior who visits the campus is making a life-shaping decision,” Williams said. “We want the first impression of a Faulkner education to be distinctive.”
