The Old Well has new accessibility features for the start of the academic year. Renovations completed over the summer include the installation of a sloped pathway that connects the surrounding brick pavers with the upper platform of the Old Well.
“The Old Well is one of the most photographed icons in our state. It brings our community together every day, and especially tomorrow when we celebrate FDOC and our tradition of the first sip,” Chancellor Kevin M. Guskiewicz said on Aug. 20, when the Old Well officially reopened. “Yet for decades, it hasn’t been truly accessible to every member of our community. That changes today, and I am so grateful to the many people who worked together to make this possible.”
University Photographer Johnny Andrews made photos throughout the construction process and shares a look at the work that went into renovating this priceless gem.
