Rivier University’s Gateway Projects reached a major milestone with the installation of the main entrance gateways at the rotary on Main Street. Large, native granite pillars, complete with new University signage, greet visitors on both sides of the entrance onto South Main Street.

Construction on the east entrance to campus, at the corner of South Main Street and Fairway Drive, has begun. This gateway will be similar in design and construction to those at the main entrance.

Considerable progress has been made on the landscape in front of Madeleine Hall and on the construction of Heritage Plaza. The Hall’s building entrance and parking area are being reconfigured to increase accessibility and enhance the first-time visitor experience to campus and the Admissions Office housed inside.

Across the street from Madeleine Hall, Heritage Plaza is planned as the new campus focal point. This circular space will feature a bronze sculpture of Blessed Anne Marie Rivier, the University’s foundress, with a brick walkway of personalized pavers donated by alumni, faculty, staff and friends of the University. The Plaza will provide access to the Campus Quad and Dion Student Center.

Access an overview of all the Gateway Projects and opportunities.
