Construction

Man on the Street: Fountain returns, students rejoice


The Cullen Family Plaza Fountain unofficially reopened last week after over a year and a half of closure for repairs.

The University drained the fountain in the winter of 2014. For the most part, it’s stayed dry since.

The fountain was refilled for special events like the Republican presidential debate in February, but many students never caught a glimpse of the campus landmark during those brief periods of time.

Construction on the fenced-up fountain began after the spring 2016 commencement and it was filled in time for the first week of classes. A lighting ceremony was planned to celebrate the reopening, but it was postponed due to weather.

After years of walking past a construction zone, students can now see a filled fountain. The Cougar asked students what they think about it.
