It is, of course, very beautiful but not as green. All the space between the women's quad and the backs of the Hein Park houses has to be parking lots. However, the center of the campus behind Briggs and in front of Mallory Gym has no traffic at all any more. Just foot traffic and a huge lawn bounded by the music building and the new library. All the parking surrounds the buildings, one drives all the way around the gyms to find parking for McCoy Theatre (in the old Zeta house). V. Astor
