The Physical Spaces committee was put in place by the LB to make sure that we as a campus do this. Over the next year we will tackle (not literally) issues ranging from roof access, tree houses, murals in buildings, to whatever else the monkeys in the back room of the campus center can come up with. Most of all this committee is about your campus, so talk to your representative, e-mail us (hey were working on it), just let us now what changes you want to see made on our campus.
