About the Cover

1999 Summer Bulletin Cover Chan Shun Pavilion is the new home of the Edward F. Cross School of Engineering. Completed in 1998, it was funded by major grants from the Chan Shun International Foundation, the Murdoch Charitable Trust and hundreds of gifts from alumni and friends. The architectural and engineering design, a gift of six graduates of the program, is a symbol of the ingenuity and dedication of the engineering alumni.

The creative use of brick and glass reflects existing architectural features of the campus and the natural surroundings of trees and sky. The entrance to the Pavilion serves as a stage for music and vespers programs. The expanse of glass serves as a mirror, reflecting the College Church steeple silhouetted against a backdrop of blue sky or brilliant sunset. Inside, the 33,000-square-foot building houses offices, laboratories, classrooms and a student study center.

--Rodney Heisler, Professor of Engineering
