A variety of construction updates are available from the YouTube channel of the School of Business, WMSchoolofBiz, and are titled "Rex Unplugged..."
The gates that formerly marked the entrance to the Lake Matoaka Amphitheatre are presently being restored (as of October 2007) and will be returned as part of the School of Business construction project. The gates were damaged by the contractor when they were removed and plans were made to have the gates repaired by a blacksmith. One of the School of Business' "Rex Unplugged" videos is about the gates.
