Digital Lunch and Learn: Restoring M - Hill

Thursday, May 20, 2021 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM
Time Zone: America/Denver
Local Time: Thursday, May 20, 2021 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM



The South Dakota School of Mines & Technology (SD Mines) President Dr. Jim Rankin, and the Alumni Association have requested the assistance of a senior capstone design team to determine the most effective, economical, and aesthetically appealing solution for the aging monogram on M-Hill. Meetings have been conducted with each of the primary stakeholders to identify the main concerns and constraints for the project. Four main areas of concern for this project were evaluated.  These areas of concern fall within CARA (Center for Alumni Relations and Advancement) owned property, as well as a small portion of Hanson-Larsen Memorial Park (HLMP) property. The M-Hill monogram has become a great symbol of our school. The monogram has created many traditions since its original construction on October 5, 1912. Throughout time, there have been various traditions. The longest standing tradition has been the whitewashing of the “M”. This tradition is held with a picnic, M-Hill hike, and whitewashing of the monogram on the Friday of SD Mines Homecoming week. Most students never forget the experience as they hike the hill with the seniors and participate in the activities of the day. The objective of this project has been to evaluate the existing conditions of M-Hill with consideration for rehabilitation and safety upgrades, a synopsis of stakeholder meetings/objectives, the development of conceptual alternative designs, and impact analysis will be discussed.
