    But whether it's considered the front or back, what I really hope is not true is that they would build in the area between Oliver and Girard park. I think the idea of a new quad there would be very nice.
    Would you then tear down or renovate the old Engineering building?

    Yes, that would be my first choice....to renovate and expand the current building. I don't know where else it could go......we are land-locked.

    I think the master plan called for engineering to move into Wharton Hall, with all of the allied health studies moving to the old OLOL campus. Wish we knew more about the OLOL property: I thought the money we got from selling the Horse Farm was to buy it.

    Renovating is probably not feasible. Would be extremely difficult to bring up to current code which more than likely would be required with an extensive renovation.

    That's what I thought as well.

    So as I see it, and I may be missing something, but I don't see where on the main campus we have enough room to put a new building that is bigger than Madison.

    About the only places we we have left for any new buildings are the extension of Oliver, next to Griffin at the corner or Lewis & Rex or in the Quad next to Foster. This is why I asked the question to begin with, as I am very curious to know where they would put the new building.

    I don't know if this has been mentioned anywhere, but are there any plans for a baseball hitting facility? Something like what Coastal has in place of the maintenance building would be nice.

    I bet you could make a hitting facility look really nice and a significant recruiting tool on a small budget with brick to match the stadium, a metal tin-roof, wrap-around side-walk, Ragin Cajuns signage, and some landscaping to compliment the structure.

    Four million dollar multi-story facility along Reinhardt near right field corner to include coaches offices, locker room, player lounge, indoor hitting and pitching facility, and a roof deck. Just guessing.

    I had a little FB chat with Guidry's iron works the other day saying that it would be great if they could design a new 'fence' around Cajun field. Of course he loved the idea. I asked them to get their sales guy to approach the university. Hopefully they will get together to discuss

    Ah, Youth Park. Remember that litte concrete circle turnaround? Was a great place to "park" if you know what I mean. Until the pecan patrol caught you So, anyone have a blueprint of the project? Hopefully they bought the entire corner, where the mcdonalds, that used car lot, the sports field and also the UL merch store. Hopefully they will level that entire area. That is some prime real estate.

    I've done a little poking around for more renderings of the project, with no luck so far. But I will continue the effort.
    And I also have been really hoping that they have bought out the couple of businesses along Johnston, which were up for sale recently.....but I kind of think we did not buy them. Too bad, as they are a pretty much an eyesore whereas they could make it a really nice entry to the university.

    They have started the construction of the new housing in the Dog Park/Lewis street area. Not much to see yet, just fencing and initial dirt work.....and my pics are that great, but hopefully this gives an idea of what's happening so far.

    First up, on St Julien standing next to the fire station, looking towards the Dog Park. They have blocked off the end of St Julien.

    Next, on Lewis st, looking toward the Dog Park. Interesting: the fencing goes all the way around the Red Zone, so I don't know if this means it will not be included, or, more likely, it will be a later, separate phase.

    I have a BA in History, and a minor in City/Regional planning, so excuse my interest in stuff that might not be shared by others, lol. I guess that's also part of the reason why I like all the "On Campus" stuff about as much as like the athletic related posts, and why I have reviewed our Master Plan so extensively.

    A small part of the plan that caught my eye recently was the proposed shifting of academics around…which at first seemed strange but once I mapped it out and understood what they were doing thought it was a very neat concept.

    Basically, they are proposing turning the campus into academic zones…….moving all the Liberal Arts studies to the Quad, making the Rex Street area Math/Engineering/Tech, and (hopefully one day) dedicating the OLOL campus to Allied Health studies.

    This would make (especially as upperclassmen) navigating around campus much easier/simpler/quicker…...E.G., if you are Liberal Arts major, most of your classes would be around the Quad.

    Anyway, since we were talking about where a new Madison Hall would go on this thread a while back I thought I'd add this to the conversation.

    Here is a summary of the detailed proposed moves:

    Quad: becomes focus of Liberal Arts/English studies
    M. Doucet: Add English/Liberal Arts, move Math to Griffin, Education to Girard.
    Mouton: No Change, Sociology/Anthropology, etc.
    Stephens: Add Liberal Arts, move Comp Center to DeClouet
    Broussard: Add English/Liberal Arts, move Physics to Griffin
    Lee& Foster: N/C, remains Admin Services
    FG Mouton/Moody: N/C, remain Business
    DeClouet : Add Comp Center, (Gen Studies program no longer offered)
    Girard: Education only, move Liberal Arts (psychology, etc.) to Stephens/Doucet

    St Mary
    Wharton: assumes Nursing moves to OLOL campus, adds History/Geography/Philosophy/Psych

    Rex St/Girard Pk: becomes focus of Math/Science/Engineering/Tech
    Griffin: Add Engineering Admin offices, Math, Physics, Geology
    Madison: Add 'Lab teaching space,' move admin offices to Griffin
    Montgomery: N/C, Chemistry
    Oliver: N/C, Computer Sciences
    Rougeau: N/C, Ind Tech

    But how will the freshmen know the pain of having history on the 5th floor of Griffen until 9:50 am then psychology on the second floor of Girard @ 10 am
