Emilio Santini stands over a tool-strewn work table, spinning a glowing tube of glass in the roaring blast of an oxy-propane torch. Yellow flames erupt from the red-hot surface, reflecting eerily in the near-black lenses of his protective glasses. But instead of flinching, Santini simply peers back through the fiery display with an intense look of purpose and concentration. The year-old York County artist lost track long ago of the thousands and thousands of times he's shaped a piece of glass since his first clumsy attempts as a grade-school kid on the Italian island of Murano. By the time he made his first move to the United States in , his skills were already so well-honed that he ranked among the most expert lamp workers in the country.

Although the Leverett dining hall will reopen in time for the return of students in fall , construction on the rest of the building will continue through fall Like the plans for Old Quincy, which is currently being renovated, those for Old Leverett call for the elimination of walk-through bedrooms in favor of clusters of rooms and singles off of hallways. Old Leverett will also see the addition of common spaces and new horizontal hallways that connect the traditional vertical entryways. While administrators say that these features will likely be included in the plans for the other undergraduate Houses, they will have to address problems specific to each House. In Leverett, for instance, the dining hall often becomes overcrowded during peak meal times. Construction plans seek to combat crowding in the dining hall by adding additional common spaces, though the square footage of the current dining hall will remain the same. The alleyway that students currently use to access the dining hall from Memorial Drive will be walled off and covered by a glass roof, creating what is called a light court in plans.
