Taking Up Residence

A pair of foxes left the wild last year and moved to the edge of campus, raising several pups and becoming a familiar sight on college walkways. They went about their business and posed no apparent threat except to the squirrels. Meanwhile, temporary, modular housing went up along the southern edge of campus at the site of the old clay tennis courts. The units will house 100 students displaced during dormitory construction and renovations.
