The Record conducted a poll about the recently renovated Frosh Quad and Sawyer Quad over the past week via email. The poll informed a random selection of 500 students that the renovation of both quads was complete and cost the College close to $10 million. Students were then told to “indicate your opinion of this recent construction.”
The project was part of a larger goal to create a traditional quad surrounded by Hollander Hall, Shapiro Hall and Sawyer Library, according to Fred Puddester, vice president for finance and administration. Of the responders, 158 students, or 61.5 percent approved of the project, 65 students, or 25.3 percent disapproved and 34 students, or 13.2 percent had no opinion. The margin of error was 5.74 percent.
