If that headline includes a term that’s completely foreign to you, either you graduated before the early 1990s or you knew it only as “the School Street project.”

In Exchange is the formal title of an area of sculpture (including a water treatment) and plantings that beautified the closed section of School Street between Stevenson and Williams Halls. The project also provides outdoor seating and meeting space, including an amphitheatre.

The project was funded entirely by private donations. Members of the Classes of 1994, 1995, 1996, 1998, and 1999 voted to help fund In Exchange with their class gifts.

A dedication ceremony was held in May. For photos (even though they just can’t do it justice….), see www.illinoisstate.edu/alumni/inexchange.shtml.
