Clark staff member Ilja Sanio recently had the opportunity to take a cessna flight over the city of Lincoln and during the flight he took aerial photos of the St. Thomas Aquinas project. From the images take notice of the roof complete on the north portion of the building, which houses the meeting rooms and offices of the Newman Center as well as the rectory. St. Thomas Aquinas Church occupies the south portion of the building. The Church's construction is phased behind the Newman Center side, where the roof trusses are still being placed and the south side of the building has yet to received all its exterior brick. Rising above the entire complex are the bell tower and the Church's crossing tower. Also visible in the photos is the Phi Kappa Theta Fraternity house, completed by Clark Architects in 2013, which is located to the east of St. Thomas. This vantage point gives a new perspective to an important project for the campus ministry and Catholic community of the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.
