UL Lafayette’s Quadrangle Improvements – See What It Will Look Like



The University of Louisiana at Lafayette’s Quadrangle and Walk of Honor are getting a student-designed makeover, which will include a fountain, new walkways and landscaping. Workers are removing sidewalks, seating and most of the trees within the Quad. A new, improved drainage system also will be installed. (Boy, do I remember sloshing through there when it was raining on my way to Maxim Doucet for Math and Stephens for the Computer Lab!) They are preserving the oak trees.

A section of the University’s Walk of Honor, walkways paved with the names of alumni (including me- Class of 1979) intersects the Quad. The inscribed terracotta pavers will be replaced with bricks. The Walk of Honor will eventually be extended beyond the Quad, running parallel to Boucher Street, near the Rose Garden and the Student Union.

UL Lafayette’s Student Government Association spearheaded the redesign in 2010. Senior architecture students developed the design for the University’s Community Design Workshop, which enables students to work on real-life projects.

The Quadrangle redesign, which is part of the University’s comprehensive Master Plan, is the first major project to be paid for with self-assessed student fees.
