The college’s supporters celebrated a major victory at Homecoming with the groundbreaking for the Diane C. Nordin ’80 Turf Field, expected to open for the fall 2013 semester. Student-athletes and coaches, trustees and administrators joined Nordin (center) and her husband, Thomas Keller (in Wheaton sweatshirt), to kick off construction. In six short months, alumnae/i, parents and friends contributed $3 million toward the new artificial turf field, which will expand the opportunities for varsity, club and intramural teams. Before opening day, however, the college must raise an additional $1 million to support long-term maintenance for the field.
