    Fences on Central Campus

    To those still around ISU... what do you think of all the fences they are putting around campus (particuarly central campus) designed to keep people off the grass? Yes our nice campus is a big selling point for ISU... but whats the point of having that space if you're not supposed to be on the grass? That defeats the whole purpose!


    And before anyone thinks I've had a few too many - no I'm not talking about snow fences


    Oh we will fight, fight, fight for Iowa State,
    and may her colors ever fly!!!

    They are putting fences all over? Never did that when I was in school.

    Are they permanent fences?

    Re: Fences on Central Campus

    I hated when the snow fences went up. It was always a downer. But if they have even more now that just sucks. Central Campus is still one of the first places that I go to whenever I'm back in Ames.

    yeah those dumb chain link fences, they really don't stop anybody from walking the beaten "cow-paths" across central campus, you just gotta step over them

    Re: Fences on Central Campus

    Honestly, as someone who usually (read - 99.9% of the time) just stays on the sidewalk, it's not a big deal to me.

    Re: Fences on Central Campus

    Some of them are actually for snow drifts somehow...(i work for facilities and thats what they told me) otherwise, they just dont wan those "new" paths students make....they actually are pretty ugly....for example the one by the parking lot at lied.

    Re: Fences on Central Campus

    They only really get it my way when it's warm and bright enough to lay on the lawn and read. Other than that, I use the sidewalks.

    Re: Fences on Central Campus

    I think it completely defeats the purpose of having green space on campus. I actually have a friend who is on the GSB exec board who told me she's pretty ****** about it, and they're actually trying to find out how much money Facilities Planning and Management is wasting on this crap.

    Re: Fences on Central Campus

    Does anyone have any pictures of said fences? I am intrigued at what they are doing. I hope they are not ruining the beauty of campus with the fences.....

    that big dead strip by lied isn't from students....i think it is caused by the steam tunnels

    That looks like and older version... the newer ones have 3 links (similar to those... but with another set below)

    Those type of fences are not for snow drifts. I work at FP&M too... but it's a **** good thing it's not in that department. I would not be happy with my job... they are tacky looking and kill the whole point of our campus
