Unveiling of Centennial Plaza

After several missed deadlines, the Centennial Plaza was officially unveiled to the public on Sat. April, 18.

Dr. Diana Natalicio and the honorable Kunzang C. Namgyel, Bhutanese Ambassador to the United Nations spoke to hundreds of spectators about the plaza and the Lhakhang.

There were several representatives from the Kingdom of Bhutan along with Bhutanese UTEP students in attendance.

According to organizers UTEP is exclusive in the fact that it is the only place aside from the Kingdom of Bhutan to have a Lhakhang.

Some features include water fountains, fire pits, and a stadium-like outline which surround the grass area of the plaza.

    “After several missed deadlines”? Really? What kind of softball line is that? Bad journalism at its finest. I do not think I have to say that the construction at UTEP has been pedestrian and fairly detrimental to people–I’m not even mentioning ADA compliance issues!–the truth is that this project is still ongoing and just because one little patch is done does not mean we are finished with this.
