A Swamplot correspondent, concerned that readers of this site
so often have “before” and “after” photos, but rarely a “during”
sends in these action shots from this morning, showing the demolition-in-progress of the University of St. Thomas’s Augustine Living-Learning Community at 4119 Graustark.
UST’s news department reports that the building’s destruction will at last allow the liberation of the programs formerly sequestered within:
. . . the heart of the Living-Learning Community, an intensive experience in the integration of faith, academics and life, will continue to beat in a program bearing a new name â€“ Augustine-Without-Walls.
â€œThe name signifies more than the removal of the residenceâ€™s brick exterior: the program will now be open to all UST students who want to share in Augustine events, which focus on integrating academic learning with faith convictions and real everyday life,â€ said Sister Paula Jean Miller, FSE, Augustine-Without-Walls Program director.
