CLAS '11; I loved those trees. They are a part of the community. Tearing them down is tearing down the institution. Way to start off with a bang sullybuns.

I'm a 4th year due to graduate in may and without the magnolias the rotunda just will not look that same on graduation day when I go to walk the lawn

Part of the eternal beauty of the Rotunda and the Academical Village is the nature that surrounds it. I can remember many times in my tenure at UVA heading to those trees for comfort.

Even as a first year, I've already developed a sense of comfort, and I guess you could call it something akin to nostalgia for the feel of the lawn. I wouldn't want to see it changed.

Of late, the University has been too willing to sacrifice its verdant heritage to ease the convenience of construction. I want us to build a better future in concert with these trees. Let us not be so eager to cast aside our heritage - these trees are a large part of what makes our University such a beautiful place to be!

It's clear from the renovation of the 1970s that the work can be accomplished without killing these lovely trees. The fact that this plan has even been mooted says a great deal about the priorities of this administration.

There HAS to be a better way to avoid cutting the trees down.

We need to protect nature and our environment, not destroy it.
