“A revitalized Lower Sproul Plaza is envisioned as a “camps living room” where students can engage in social, academic and recreational activities at all hours of the day and night. Students will have spaces for meetings, group study, performance and practice, and for just “hanging out.” The total project budget of $223 million is jointly funded through the Bringing Energy and Revitalization of Sproul (B.E.A.R.S) Initiative Fee passed by students in 2010 and campus funds.” Source: University of California Berkeley website
