3.  Workers lay the cement and foundation for the new building during late summer and early fall of 2008.  Underneath the smooth cement lies the two-story underground parking lot, which will be used by both students and faculty members.

4.  Construction workers at the top of the girders loom high above.  The senior class wrote their names and messages on one of the steel beams.  "I Love You Mom" was also written by a construction worker on another steel column.  The construction at this point happened during the mid-late September of 2008.
