Dear Campus Communities,
The question on everyone’s minds these days has been: What are all the construction equipment and industrial vehicles doing on campus? The short answer: Willard College has leased a number patches of campus to one of the nation’s premier natural gas and oil companies. Can Willard provide both a high quality education and premium quality natural gas and oil? Is it safe for our students to have a major extractive industry active on campus? Do we have cafeteria capacity for the additional 300 men who will be stopping in for lunch every day? Yes, we’ve planned for this moment, and Willard is ready to once again show America what a college can be.
Best, Henry Cotton, President
