Waters Courtyard Adds Beauty to Queens' Campus

Queens' campus just got more beautiful, thanks to the generosity of dedicated donor K. Martin Waters, Jr. and his children.

On a recent visit to campus to see the new Rogers Hall science building, Waters noticed the pathways leading to the north end of campus could use a little tender loving care to make the area more aesthetically pleasing.

For years, the Diana Courtyard has been a focal point on campus, but Waters believed that with other infrastructure updates taking place on campus, it was a great time to resurrect another courtyard on Queens' campus.

Over the summer, a daily crew worked to makeover the area just north of Burwell Hall into what is now Waters Courtyard, complete with brick lined paths leading to other parts of campus, gorgeous landscaping and a fountain. The courtyard was complete just in time for the start of the 2013-2014 school, with classes starting today.

This gorgeous addition to campus will now serve as a place for students to meet, study or just hang out.

Waters made this generous gift in honor of family members who attended Queens: Mary Yates Keesler, 1883 (grandmother); Sarah Keesler Waters Thompson, 1922 (mother); Mary Waters Covington, 1960 (sister); Kathryn McLean Rymer, 2010 (great-niece).
