Parking Lot 80, shown covered in snow in 1974, was once home to 1,600 parking spaces for students, faculty, and staff. Students living in East Halls would brace against frigid winter winds while crossing “the tundra” on their way to class.

By 2006, the area had made way for the Business Building, the Forest Resources Building, and the Food Science Building (which became the new home for the Berkey Creamery), as well as the 1,200-space East Parking Deck.
