OMG: So obviously UW has nothing better to do with our ever-more-bloated fees than to landscape the Grad House green, creating a giant roadblock in the middle of campus for months on end for "improvements" that the area didn't even need in the first place. That's money that could have just as easily gone towards the huge backlog of necessary improvements to educational and research programs, but no, THIS is apparently what we need, a fancy little campus facelift. "Why not?", indeed ... what buzzword-ridden BS will they dream up next?

  1. If it helps, your fees don't pay for landscaping.
    And these changes were approved a decade ago, as part of the Campus Master Plan. The end result will look pretty good, and will integrate really well with the series of other changes they will make afterwards (including, eventually, a replacement building for South Campus Hall). I'm okay with my campus looking more modern and being more functional overall!

  2. I agree. Also, I'm sick of seeing constructions. That's all I have been seeing and will see for the remainder period at this school. It really ruins the general day to day mood.

    1. Then when you're outside of campus it's all LRT construction.

  3. Ya.. lets just not build anything new. I already notice a huge difference when walking up the hill to TC. I hope they do more to make this campus look nicer..

  4. Seeing as how one of the major complaints against UW is how shit the campus looks, this makes sense from a recruiting/applications perspective.

    1. Indeed. "Fuck you. You already applied and are paying exorbitant amounts for tuition. Don't complain because we're working on the class of 2030."
