It was a perfect early evening on the uptown campus when university leaders, along with family and classmates of alumna Carol Downes Cudd, gathered on Nov. 21 to dedicate the patio at the Newcomb College Institute in her honor.

The patio at 43 Newcomb Place was refurbished recently thanks to a gift from Mrs. Cudd, transforming it into a beautiful outdoor space for institute events, such as the annual open house at homecoming.
