Reid Hall will be torn down in order to make room for a new green space in the center of campus. MSU Campus Planning, Design & Construction, with full support from President Waldo Cruzaldo, announced the new look for campus at a public forum on Tuesday, March 29.
The proposed green space will include both a grass lawn as well as multiple trees, and proponents of the project include tens of hammockers and multiple slackline enthusiasts. The demolition/construction is expected to begin during the Fall 2016 semester.
Reid Hall was chosen from a list of potential locations that included the spaces now occupied by Roberts Hall and Leon Johnson Hall, and although the team in charge of the project recognized that each location had its setbacks, they felt that Reid Hall was ideal for this project. “Reid Hall, even though it is home to the College of Education, Health & Human Development and multiple classrooms, is of little use to students compared to an open field,” said Johnny Crappleseed, director of Campus Planning, Design & Construction. “This university is lucky in that there is so much free space that is currently only occupied by classrooms and computer labs; there is a lot of room for the growth and development of more lawns and trees.”
