We asked what you wanted to see in the photo gallery. Reader Robert McCarthy wondered what the section of campus that he remembers as "the tundra" looks like now. He recalled cold walks in the 1970s from his residence hall to class at Wells Hall. This photo, taken last week from an upper floor of Holden, shows the current tennis courts, Spartan Stadium, the football practice field, the new STEM building being constructed at the site of the old power plant and Wells Hall in the distance. We hope this brings back warm memories. Photo by Derrick L. Turner.
