Hey Eagles! Did you know that Campus Walk was nonexistent until 1985?! That’s right the school used to have a road going right down the middle of campus! Originally called Campus Drive, it bricked over in order to promote a pedestrian friendly and smaller community. The transformation was met by tons of protest, but ultimately it was seen as a wonderfully addition. For all you eagles complaining about the sunken gates being closed and having to drive around the perimeter of Mary Washington…blame those who voted in favor of bricking up Campus Drive. However those of you who chose this school for is cozy, comfortable, close-knit community, you can praise our ancestors who vote in favor of Campus Walk.
