150th Sesquicentennial Celebration - Fresh Bus Wraps Pitch History

In September, 2017, the University replaced a worn out Purple Wrap with one highlighting the Residence Hall System.  That fresh wrap included pictures of the 1st residence hall (Daniel Buck Hall), the two Gage Towers (imploded in 2013), and the newest addition (Margaret R. Preska Hall).  Residence Hall Association leaders are seen in this picture claiming ownership of the wrap.

In February, 2017 University President Richard Davenport, 2016-17 Student Association President Faical Rayani, and Stomper checked out a replacement bus wrap with images  of Old Main (former MSU headquarters in the old Valley Campus), and a picture of the Alumni Arch and Bell Tower.
