I fondly remember playing touch football on the Cross Campus in front of Sterling Library and between Berkeley College’s two courtyards (which were too small for football but perfect for some killer Frisbee.) Senior year, football was not an option, due to construction of an underground library. I remember a bunch of us going out to climb into the trees on the Cross Campus to save them from being removed by bulldozers prior to the beginning of construction. We eventually were assured that they would be replanted. The construction site was a good source of wood for my fireplace.
