A gateway to North Campus

By Kevin Manne

Over the past year, the School of Management community has embraced Paula T. Agrusa Plaza — our new pocket park located between Alfiero Center and Park Hall. 

Filled with flowers, benches, walking paths and café-style lighting, the plaza creates a welcoming entrance and provides outdoor learning environments and spaces where faculty, students, alumni and visitors have gathered and collaborated.

The project, which also includes a refreshed exterior space on the southern side of Jacobs Management Center, was made possible by a gift from alumnus Russ Agrusa, BS ’76, in memory of his wife and School of Management alumna, Paula Agrusa, BS ’78.

Be sure to explore the space the next time you visit campus. Until then, here are some photos to give you a preview — and you can take a virtual tour through the plaza below.
