The Quad: Home to the Corps of Cadets
Texas A&M University completed the largest renovation of the Quad since its initial construction in 1939 which completely remodeled the 12 Corps area dorms, added four state-of-the-art Leadership Learning Centers, constructed all new sidewalks and parade decks, and added a Starbucks to the southside section of the campus.
The leadership learning centers have offered the Corps something that has been long over due- a place for cadets to study and take advantage of academic resources such as computer labs and group study rooms, two things that cadets found themselves doing “off-quad” the majority of the time. Now that the leadership learning centers have been set in place (not to mention the Starbucks!), cadets have been able to focus on their studies in the comfort of the quad. Having these safe havens where cadets can conduct group studies, research projects, or simply study on their own has made taking care of academics a little bit less of a hassle, not mention that it has made the quad a little more like home.
