GW officials have announced that the 'green space' behind Guthridge, South and Strong residence halls will be completed to a certain extent by finals. Though it will not be completely finished for students to enjoy this summer, it is a symbol of the green credentials of GW.
John Ralls, special adviser for community and outreach in the Office of the Executive Vice President and Treasurer, said in an interview with the Hatchet:
"The project will green the area, both by providing open green space and sustainable features,"
For me personally, I love the fact that we can live in a city campus but still have open green areas to hang out in. For people who have been walking through Kogan the last few weeks of nice weather, it is obvious that people enjoy the option of getting outside and enjoying the sun. This new 'green space' will increase these options, maybe even dragging people away from playing on their computers in their dorms!
