The heartbeat of campus

Passing through Turlington Plaza can be nothing short of hectic. It is not uncommon to see several rows of promotional tables, students handing out flyers, and two or three campus tours all happening at once.

Flash mobs, sit-in protests, viral videos and performances all occur in this space.  

Freshman students often find the hustle and bustle of this great student courtyard to be overwhelming for their first few months on campus. But over time, many students come to appreciate Turlington as a hub for information, community and school spirit. They also learn how to dodge bikers that swerve through the crowds.

As the school year picks up pace, Turlington Plaza continues to be the central organ of the university.
