There some activity up on the plaza between Pupin and the new Northwest Science Building.  Walkways are being laid down, the broken bricks you kick on the way to class are being repaired and this ridiculously long awning connects to a big tent.

Could it be some ritzy opening ceremony?  If you know, email us at

Update, 2:15 PM: A tipster reports that the building’s dedication is tonight Friday morning at 9:15.
