Masonry Day at SIUC

The Illinois Masonry Institute recently presented Masonry Days at the SIUC campus. Students from the School of Architecture learned a great deal about masonry construction and were given the opporunity to lay brick under the instruction of masonry professionals. Robin Morrow England, a junior in architecture, is seen at the right being shown how to place brick.

Junior Derrick Wildes has buttered his brick and seems to be considering his next move very carefully. For many students, this was the first time they had been this up close and personal with masonry products.

The event was arranged by Professor Norm Lach. As you may be able to tell by the images, it turned out to be one of our cold spring days instead of our legendary warm spring days in Carbondale.

The day ended with Masonry Jeopardy inside the Student Center Auditorium. Although Norm's Home Boys scored well with those double jeopardy questions they luckily kept finding, the Blue Falcons ended up dominating the event. Students from the winning team received gift cards to Best Buy.
