HUB Lawn Restored, Set To Reopen For Public Access In The Fall
The HUB Lawn became an iconic staple of Penn State during its heyday, offering students a comfortable, scenic place to relax, converge, and complete schoolwork. However, the lawn’s tranquility and beauty were replaced by machines and a temporary bookstore after the HUB-Robeson Center renovation project began in June 2013, and the iconic HUB Lawn entered its two-year long hiatus.
Since construction wrapped up earlier this year, the HUB lawn is in the beginning stages of returning to its former glory. The brown dirt formerly infested with construction equipment is now littered with grass seed, meaning it should be completely restored by the time classes resume in the fall. incoming freshmen, sophomores, and juniors — like myself — will now be able to experience the HUB Lawn and all that it entails, instead of passing by a giant, fenced eyesore en route to class.

As you can tell, the lawn is well on its way to returning to full strength. The grass seed is currently being watered and treated, and once it grows, students will be able to freely use the HUB Lawn, just as students did in past years.
