At the University of Louisville, the scenery is changing at Brandeis School of Law, according to WHAS.
A makeover is taking place at the school one plant and flower at a time. It is being done by professors, students and alumni of the school. When Tony Arnold, a law and urban planning professor came to the school in 2005, he said he saw a lot of unused space.
Two courtyards at the school have been improved with native plants and flowers for the new landscaping. The courtyards now look like the nature found in Kentucky. The design was done by a former student of the school who earned her degree in law and urban planning.
The student said that the area is sustainable socially because staff members and students can interact while the project is being completed.
The project received funding from an alum, Charles Hebel Junior, and his wife. The school cannot wait to see how the upgraded space is used by students and professors once school is in session again.
Brandeis is one of the first public schools to require some form of community service prior to graduation.
The law school’s courtyards are going to be renamed the Charles Hebel, Jr., and Carol Hebel Courtyards, according to a news release from the school.
