A newly completed outdoor classroom will honor the memory of a 20-year-old Briar Cliff University student who passed away in a sudden accident back in April.
The Andrea Norton Outdoor Classroom was dedicated at BCU Monday afternoon.
Norton died in a hiking accident in Arkansas last Spring while traveling with a group of students.
It’s the result of a collaborative vision among the students within Briar Cliff’s Honors Program and History Department and was funded by a MRHD grant.
Dr. Nathan Probasco’s environmental history course helped inspire the vision to create an outdoor learning space on Briar Cliff’s campus.
