The Heights would like to commend the University on its plans to transform O’Neill Plaza into a much-needed green space on campus. The classes after 2014 were never able to fully enjoy and utilize the Dustbowl, and have felt the absence of green space on this campus. The plans, which will replace much of the concrete on O’Neill Plaza with grass and trees, will allow these students to get a feel for the atmosphere that was lost with the demolition of the Dustbowl.
The green spaces available on this campus for recreation, relaxation, and studying outdoors are few, and often extremely crowded. This addition will allow for more students to spend time outdoors during the nice weather. Green space will become more accessible to everyone, and will enhance the overall look and appeal of our already beautiful campus. The Heights eagerly awaits this transformation that should be completed by the beginning of next year.
