Hands-on engineering senior design program flourishes this fall

RIT’s Multidisciplinary Senior Design program began last fall with more projects for engineering student teams than expected, despite the pandemic.

Former West Pullman school turned into senior housing

Anyone who enters the nearly block-long brick structure in West Pullman expecting to find a typical collection of apartments for seniors is in for a pleasant surprise.

Wide corridors invite chance meetups. Generously sized windows stream light deep into the building.

The building at 11941 S. Parnell Ave. is the old West Pullman Elementary School, with part of its structure dating from 1894. It grew to allow for a capacity of 2,000 students, but dwindling enrollment led former Mayor Rahm Emanuel to close it

Election officials use Dominion Voting Systems in 28 states, including several key battleground states. Members of Trump’s legal team have alleged that the company uses voting software that can be controlled by operators overseas to “steal” elections, much as they alleged the election was stolen from Trump.
