I try to not be cynical, but I am.
This week PSU announced that they will be converting current animal pastures into recreation fields. Incurring an expense of some $2.97M (during a budget crisis).
So one has to think, will students be excited to trek out to the fields after dropping off their (possibly) 30% higher tuition check at Shields Building?
The fields that they will be converting include the lots where Brown preferred and the new(ish) Reserved Pink (overflow) parking are located.
The improvements include grading, irrigation and, so the kids can play ultimate frisbee after dark, lighting.
