East Campus Plan

Western has announced a plan for East Campus.  They will renovate East Hall and tear down North Hall, West Hall, and the Speech and Hearing Center.  This is probably for the best, though a little sad.

Preservationists are upset.  But nobody has ever come up with a practical plan to save East Campus, for reasons explained in an earlier article.

Poor East Campus
