The plaza and rain gardens serve as the new social and academic heart of campus offering spaces for academic and physical sustenance. Ample spaces abound for hosting formal gatherings, people watching and quiet contemplation. This is the place to hang out, eat lunch, and learn. Water features which serve to store and showcase stormwater were designed in compliance with Sustainable Sites Initiative requirements, and Low Impact Development strategies were used comprehensively in the site development. This project received a LEED Gold certification.
