SDSU campus landscape improvements

Since 2015, San Diego State University campus planners have made a concerted effort to improve the overall campus landscape and site experience.  The decision originally was spurred by a desire to add a tree canopy, reduce unusable turf grass areas, and  create a uniquely Southern California landscape experience that students had come to expect at a San Diego university campus.  The result has been hundreds of new trees added, thousands of square feet of unused turf transformed into usable social gathering spaces, and the start of a cohesive landscape experience for the campus that is unique to SDSU. The first project undertaken was Centennial Mall. Through 2019, complete projects include the Alumni Center, the Love Library, Aztec Walk East, Montezuma Road, and East Campus Drive. The outcome is and will continue to transform the campus experience as a whole.
