It seemed like the final notes of the Alma Mater had barely stopped echoing after Commencement in the south dome of the Joyce Center before the jackhammers took over. This summer construction crews will transform the Joyce Center Arena into the Purcell Pavilion. In addition to the new name, the arena will get a new main entrance, new seating — no more bleachers — and a general “facelift” for the facility, now in its fifth decade.
