Brightly colored friendship bench.

The Friendship Bench was created using 250 pounds of plastic bottle caps from students, staff, and faculty. Located outside of the EUC, it will be officially unveiled on Friday, September 30, at 1 p.m.

The project was accomplished by alumna Claire Corrigan while she was earning a master’s degree in therapeutic recreation, along with her advisor, Dr. Stuart Schleien.
