Doug Ward was touring Lewis Hall with his son, incoming freshman Ethan, when he noticed the new residence halls under construction. The halls will open in fall 2015. Ward, who also is an associate professor of journalism, says, “Most of us spend our time in a relatively small section of the university. I like seeing what’s going on in places I can’t get to." What modern feature could you not live without in your residence hall?
