The Sharp Quad landscaping improvements were part of a long term goal to beautify the residential quads on the uptown campus. Centrally located between McAlister Auditorium and Sharp Hall, the quad is adjacent to two residence halls housing approximately 570 students. The site of a newly constructed sand volleyball court, Sharp Quad is becoming an important location for student recreation. The landscape improvements added more opportunities for passive and active recreation, improved site circulation to provide access around the newly constructed McAlister Auditorium loading dock and enhanced drainage of the area. These improvements included the addition of a sloped lawn for sunning, a grilling area with two large grilling stations, additional seating and gathering spaces (some associated with the volleyball court) and consolidated and extended bike parking.

These were exciting additions to student recreation and campus landscape, and will serve as a model for the future development of other residential and recreation quads on campus.
