There’s no shortage of strange stories when dealing with an annually revolving menagerie of college students. One day, you’re managing normal facilities-related issues—a clogged toilet or a broken pipe.

Time was when Sears, Roebuck and Co. anchored many a mall, but how shopping trends change.

Est. reading time: 6 mins

Once Rochester Institute of Technology president David Munson became familiar with the college’s widely recognized mid-century modern campus, he realized there was much about the character of the institution that the sculptural brick walls concealed rather than celebrated.
