After a little over a year of chain link fences and non-stop construction, The Quad Residence Hall is nearing completion on the campus of the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. The above photo is of Shaw Residence Hall, gateway to The Quad on the campus. The quad has been a part of UNCG since the 1920's, and, the institution had to decide whether they would raze the buildings or rebuild the outdated facilities. In the end, it was decided to honor history and rebuild.* At least a million dollars of the renovation is funded by gifts from alumi.
If you have a chance to get by to see these residence halls and learning communities before the students return next weekend, you will not be disappointed. Hats off to UNCG for finding a way to honor tradition while honoring 21st century technology and innovation.
