Picture this. You’re in class in AB Hall, and your professor accidentally teaches for five minutes after the class is supposed to have ended. Your next class in all the way over in the Fine Arts building, and you don’t want to be late. You sprint down the hall and down the stairs. But before you run across that grassy triangular area between AB and the arcade connecting AB and Ryan Hall, guilt seeps in. Do you really want to cut across the grass that the fine people in the Physical Plant take such good care of?
Now, thanks to the work of the Biological Sciences Organization as well as many other Fontbonne student volunteers, you don’t have to worry about that. This past Monday, in honor of Earth Day, the BSO put stepping stones in that triangular grassy area. Working in the spirit of Dr. Seuss’s famous character The Lorax and proudly wearing tshirts boasting, “I speak for the trees, for the trees have no tongue,” students planted ten trees around campus – most of which are in between AB Hall and Big Bend, and one of which is neatly-situated in the grassy area adjacent to the stepping stones.
So during the next few weeks of school as the road towards summer seems long and treacherous, just be glad that you now at least have a shorter route to your classes.
