Goodbye Bench

Some times ago (idk a few weeks??? who cares) the bench the overlooks St. Mary's River, right next to St. Mary's Hall, was removed.

One of the best benches on campus. Gone.



I think we all have a memory of sitting here relaxing/making out/watching stars/watching sailors/high/drunk/mixed/depressed/incredibly happy/about to graduate/content.

Really sad to see it go, but according to Chip Jackson (congrats on the new job btw bb, always believed in u) the bench will be replaced, along with another bench next to it (why 2 benches? was this move inspired by 2 chainz???).  Interesting that he did not specify why it was removed...


SURPRISE TWIST!

According to some "student" on Facebook the bench was removed because someone proposed to his wife there, and wanted the bench.

IDK how i feel about this. On the one hand that is really cute, and he probably donated a fair amount of money to have that happen.

On the other hand, we all have some good memory of that bench, and shouldn't it be preserved for everyone to experience, and continue to experience? Granted it is just a goddam bench, but I know that I will miss it.

But hey, random alumni, I sincerely hope you enjoy your bench that I and probably others have had sex on.
