    I'm wondering if they're going to take down the pine trees.

    I always thought pine trees were an eyesore...I would be ok with replacing them with oaks & magnolias.

    Agree. They belong on the campus of those northern technical schools.

    No doubt...Oaks would be cool like softball but in the case for baseball it works.

    "Oaks and pines and sweet magnolia's beauty, Show forth thy charms so rare."

    The pines are written in! Singing about non-existent pines in our Alma mater would make about as much sense as continuing to call it "beloved old Southwestern"! Lol.

    A couple of updates:

    It seems like Bittle Hall is being renovated....the UP should have first class digs when this is all done; Bittle has always been one of my favorite buildings on campus. I also did not realize that Bittle was the very first Student Union....before the 'eyesore buildings' along Hebrard, and the current location on McKinley.

    Although there is not much to see, construction is also continuing on the new 'Cypress Lake Plaza' green-space, where Guillory Hall once stood.

    Also, now that the new plantings along the Lake are maturing, they are looking good. If I remember correctly, we were concerned that they would not be tended to enough.....so far I don't think this is the case. Landscaping campus-wide is looking fantastic....better than ever.
