Starting this week our contractor will start installing the penny pool that existed in the Student Center courtyard area. We are locating the penny pool in a new location. It will be located in the sidewalk between the Student Center parking lot and Woods/Goddard Hall. The project will be improving upon the old penny pool by using natural stone to surround the pool, similar to the wall by the Media Center. In addition to the stone, we will be installing stamped concrete around the pool as well.
The new location will introduce a natural landscape element into an area where there is minimal landscaping and break-up the long, straight sidewalk that exists. The new location will also provide a symmetric element for the penny drop that occurs at Convocation and Commencement. Please refer to the plan below for a schematic of the proposed location. Please note that this sidewalk will be closed for approximately two to three weeks for construction.
