Designed by Carl Johnson, a nationally acclaimed landscape architect and campus designer, Carl D. Johnson Commons was constructed in 1994. It consists of a campus quadrangle surrounded by many of the major buildings on campus. Replacing alleys and random parking areas, it has evolved into the center of campus activities. The Commons provides much appreciated green spaces and seating areas where students can relax. It is also utilized for classes, and in fair weather serves as a gathering place for the campus community.
