A worker carries a rebar mesh panel on the Badger Street Pedestrian Mall site. Alumni remember city traffic and city busses flowing through campus on this street. The new Badger Street Pedestrian Mall will remain closed to vehicle traffic to create safe, brightly lit walkways for students and staff heading to classes.

Excavators started breaking ground for the new, student-funded fieldhouse on campus. The new facility will consists of a 200-meter NCAA competition indoor track with all-sport surface infield and space for a minimum of 1,500 spectators. The second level of the track area will have a walking/jogging track. The south end of the Student Fieldhouse will have team locker rooms and showers, a team meeting room, two multipurpose rooms, a training room, one office suite and equipment storage for Athletics, Exercise and Sports Science and Recreational Sports.
Workers drive metal plates into the ground for stability during the building process of the fieldhouse.
Wittich Hall renovation has been completed. The building will house the College of Business Administration, including the Small Business Development Center.
Many original architectural elements stayed with the building. Top, flooring from the second floor track was repurposed for wall details. Bottom left, green tile from the pool can be seen throughout the Dean's office. Bottom middle, skylights were reconstructed to add light throughout the building. Bottom right, the second floor basketball courts remain with boundary lines to remember the physical education history of the second oldest building on campus.
Workers from Apex Fencing install the chain linked fence around the new tennis courts being built on Green Island. The City of La Crosse in partnership with Coulee Region Tennis Association (CRTA), UWL, and La Crosse Aquinas Catholic Schools started construction of the community tennis complex. The 19-court site is being built at Green Island Park off South 7th Street will include 13 outdoor lighted tennis courts and six indoor tennis courts inside a year-round dome.
