If you’ve walked past the “A” recently, you may have noticed that it rests on the sidewalk, a few feet from where it normally sits. But don’t worry, this is just the first incision of some landscape plastic surgery. The 2011 senior class wanted to leave its mark by beautifying the area that has held so many True Aggie Nights.
Graduating seniors donated over $5,000 to refurbish the area surrounding the most recognizable icon at Utah State. The “A” will now sit on a concrete pad, which will stop it from sinking into the soft dirt near the quad. Also, five feet of paver bricks will surround the “A”, keeping the area from turning into mud during Homecoming, A-Day and other True Aggie Nights.
“It is our responsibility, as Aggies, to give back to this University,” said Tessa Goodall 2011 senior gift chair. “The Senior gift can be our way to show gratitude for the experience USU has provided us.”
