- Libraries & Spaces
We are currently installing new doors in the stairwell in Lauinger Library. During this time, visitors will not be able to use landings that are under construction, either to enter that floor or pass through en route to another. We encourage visitors to use the elevators, although the stairwell may still be used to access floors that are not under construction. Landings under construction should only be used in the case of an emergency.
No. After some time spent with reference books and a calculator, I believe that our youngest president was our third, William Louis DuBourg, S.S., who was appointed in 1796 at the age of 30. It is also DuBourg whom we have to thank for establishing the University Library with a gift of 100 volumes from his private library. Of our 47 presidents to date, 22 have been 44 or younger when they assumed office.
