It soon became apparent to him that there was an opportunity to build a facility that could house a number of U-affiliated organizations, including the Board of Regents. Laukka and Friswold worked together and, with the help of Dale Olseth B.
Those events also funded Scholars Walk—another project that had languished until Laukka commandeered it—a pedestrian walkway on the East Bank that lauds the accomplishments of U alumni. Originally 12, acres of farmland, the government used the site for a munitions factory during World War II, then gave 8, acres to the U, which used it for agricultural research. Laukka urged the U to investigate the site for gravel, leading to the discovery of more than million tons of it.
