    Concerning the new parking lot photos, I thought the master plan showed there would be kind of a "green mall" stretching from Tech Drive to the Quadrangle. I was thinking there would be more green space in front of Memorial Gym. Maybe I'm "mis-remembering".

    You're correct. I'll try to find my copy of the plans, I dont remember the exact location of the mall.

    Tech Green is on page 32 of the plan. I spoke to a number of people about the plan last September. Several told me the concept of Tech Green was going to be scrapped. Others said it may end up happening.

    In any case, the plan was for a parking lot or garage to replace the Nat. That happened. The lot between Woodard and Robinson would then be torn up and turned into green space. Eventually the bookstore would be torn down, as well. In addition, the parking lot between Madison and the old president's home/Ropp Center would also be torn up and turned into green space. That would provide for a linear green mall between Keeny and the new lot that was just constructed. Only the old president's home/Ropp Center would be in the path.

    Lost parking would be replaced with several parking garages - also part of the plan.

The old Chemistry building sat beside the English building on the Quad across from Keeny where the book store is now. I can't remember having classes there but did in the English building. Or maybe what we called the English building was the old Chemistry building. Thankfully we got Madison my junior year which makes it 49 years old. For that matter the Education Complex is 48 years old. I can't believe that Robinson is still there right beside the new Hale.

    That new parking lot is where the practice football field was and of course the Natatorium later. The swimming pool was originally outdoor. What were they thinking? They could only have classes in the summer which I don't believe they did.
    When did they cover the pool? I liked that pool the way it was, a big T! lol
