Transforming the Rivier Campus

Gateway Image

The Rivier University Gateways Projects are series of landscape design enhancements that will transform Rivier, creating a distinct campus experience that reflects the University's Catholic heritage and history. Consistent with Rivier's strategic and campus master plans, these projects will shape the pedestrian experience for students and all members of the Rivier community, as well as the arrival experience for first-time visitors.

Construction has been completed on several of the projects including the creation of gateways at campus entrances on both ends of South Main Street, the renovation of Resurrection Chapel, and creation of the Chapel Plaza and Quad. Brick pavers, sponsored by the University’s alumni and friends, have been placed on the Heritage Plaza terrace, and the Plaza was completed in late July with the installation of a bronze statue of Blessed Anne Marie Rivier. Improvements to the exterior of Madeleine Hall have been finished and provide a welcoming entrance for prospective students and their families visiting the Admissions Office. Renovation of the garden at Madeleine Hall is well underway. The garden has been renamed the Sharon McOsker Tamposi Alumni Legacy Garden; a dedication ceremony is planned for Alumni Reunion Weekend.
