University of Delaware students may be on summer break, but the flurry of activity continues on the STAR Campus. Sunny skies prevailed on Tuesday, June 11 for the groundbreaking of the College of Health Sciences Labyrinth, which is scheduled to be completed this summer and will be open to the public.
The groundbreaking was attended by representatives from the College of Health Sciences and Bancroft Construction, who will be building the labyrinth.
The hardscape labyrinth surrounded by lush plantings is intended to be a permanent remembrance of the precious gift given by UD’s anatomical donors. It is scheduled to be completed by Aug. 9 and will be located in front of the curved glass on the north end of the Health Sciences Complex, 540 S. College Ave.
The idea for the labyrinth came from graduates of the Doctor of Physical Therapy program, who wanted to honor donors in a lasting way while also offering a place for students, faculty, staff and the community to reflect on life.
The project was designed by Sikora Wells Appel. Costs for the labyrinth will be covered through donations and the College of Health Sciences. DelleDonne & Associates will maintain the labyrinth after its installation.
