    Facilities will be much better, but wish we had much more land for the more landscaping.

    I sometimes took classes in what was then called "little abbeville," the wooden buildings built during WWII at the back of campus.

    The campus was more beautiful then, but it got pretty hot in those old buildings.

    I do know that the Campus is much cleaner now. they have had prison labor on campus on Saturdays to help with the clean up. Not long after Dr. Savoie became president they did a general clean up of the buildings on campus. That was about the same time they cleaned Cajun Field. It looks much better now.

    I would like to see what the landscaping will look like around the parking garage and New Baker and the Tulane Ave dorm (probably new Huger).

    I think--again

    I think that in the visual that the university released--it showed some really nice seating areas with the trees and just nicely done L-scaping---With all this done so well --just know that the rest will be very much in line with the total construction package!!!!

    Parking Garage as of May 28, 2011.

    garage1

    Two entrances on McKinley street

    this one near Angelle Hall

    garage2

    this one near Hamilton Hall

    garage3

    they should be pretty close to being through with the McKinley side of the garage by the end of next week. If that happens, they will be about 50% finished with the erection of the building.

    This is a view from the front yard of Hamilton Hall

    garage4

    They have placed temprary fencing around old Baker and Huger along with Bonin, Evangeline and Buchanan Halls. Looks like demolition should start pretty soon on Bonin, old Baker and Huger and Evageline. (Maybe next week)

    New Baker hall on June 4, 2011

    Baker-june-4

    Flared soldier course over windows with a keystone. A common detail on many buildings on campus. With more brick work being completed on Baker they are incorporating arches at various locations on the buildings. There are arches on most of the older buildings on campus.

    A view of Baker Hall from Tulane Ave. The second dorm (probably Huger) is in the foreground.

    Baker-tulane

    An old fallout shelter sign on Angelle Hall. It could hold 160 people. I don't think they know it's still there.

    Demolition of Huger, Baker, Bonin and Evangeline should start in earnest next week. Griffin would not have moved two large pieces of equipment on site just to let them sit.

    Arches on new Baker Hall, similar to arches on many of the older buildings on campus.

    New Baker on left, Hamilton to the rear and middle and New Huger (I assume) on right.
