bullet Even though fifteen years have passed since the 1970 Campus Development Plan was approved and West Michigan Avenue was closed, there are few other physical changes on campus.  The pedestrian promenade between Sangren Hall and Miller Auditorium has been completed and lined with flowering trees, but roads such as North and South Hayes and North and South Dormitory still criss-cross campus and allow pedestrians and vehicles to mix. The east end of West Michigan Avenue culminates in a parking lot while the west side has become a hodge-podge of the old city street grid, private properties, leased University office space, and University parking.

bullet After a long funding drought, several construction and renovation projects came to fruition.  The Dorothy U. Dalton Center for the School of Music and the Department of Dance was completed in 1982, and the Fetzer Development Center in 1984.  WMU acquired several buildings from the State Psychiatric Hospital, including the Montague House on Oakland Dr.  Also, there was an addition and renovation to the Paper Pilot Plant in McCracken Hall.
