HUB Lawn to Go into Hibernation

Site preparations and construction for the new biobehavioral health building will begin next Monday, October 25, closing parts of the HUB lawn for most of its duration. The official groundbreaking for the new 93,500-square-foot building was on September 17 and it  is expected to be completed around November of 2012.

Although an entire timetable for construction could not be obtained, we know the new building is slated to be finished is four months later than the original July 2012 date Penn State spokesperson Geoff Rushton and Penn State Live provided.

The new Biobehavioral Health Building, located south of Henderson Building between the HUB and Old Main lawn, will help address the significant space deficiencies the College of Health and Human Development is facing.

One of the first steps in the construction process will be to build a paved, lit walkway to maintain traffic across the HUB lawn. This temporary walkway will start on the west side of the HUB, south of Henderson, and connect with existing walkways to reach the east side of the lawn, near the Schreyer Honors College.

Even though approximately half of the HUB lawn will be part of the construction zone, students should know that access of the rest of the lawn will be permitted. Impromptu games of ultimate frisbee, snowball fights, and picnic lunches can continue to live on in HUB lawn history.

Since we know our readers don’t have the time to try them all and decide for themselves, we did it for you and have decided which really hits the spot.
