Current Improvement Projects

A. The Performing Arts and Humanities Building Phase II opened in August of 2014. New plazas and landscaped areas occupy the area that was once a parking lot. Phase II exends the new landscaping to Hilltop Circle.

B. A new community focal space was incorporated into the renovation of the Hillside and Terrace communities, incorporating new landscaping, vehicular drop-off, as well as outside cooking, dining snd gathering area.

C. Accessibility improvements within the Hillside and Terrace Apartment complexes has provided new sidewalks and ramps, linking accessible apartments and all outdoor gathering spaces. 

D. The plaza to the west of the Biological Sciences Building breezeway has been enhanced to improve drainage to the area. The dynamic design solution saves a campus memorial and plantings, wrapping them in bench height planters and new two-color pavers in a bold design.

E. To improve drainage and increase access the southwest corner of the Quad has been enhanced with new drainage ponds, plantings beds and paths.

F. A major renovation of the campus pond, adjacent to the Albin O. Kuhn Libary & Gallery, will begin in 2014. This project will make improvements to the function of the pond as an important element in the campus storm water system, as well as making pedestrian and landscaping enhancements.
