School's out for the summer, but with just 122 days until the biggest event in its 50-year history, Lynn University is alive with activity.
Look no further than the entrance, where heavy equipment and a construction crew are replacing an unobtrusive driveway and guardhouse with a dramatic new look. Harder to see, but perhaps more important: the ongoing communications infrastructure changes, including 70 miles of new cable being installed on campus.
Fall will bring even more excitement, Lynn President Kevin Ross said Thursday, because the university will become host to the biggest single event of the 2012 political calendar, the last of three presidential debates.
The Oct. 22 faceoff here between President Barack Obama and Republican challenger Mitt Romney is just 15 days before Election Day.
