This summer, you may have noticed Memory Mall is undergoing its regular rehabilitation. This means the area is roped off and signs (like the one shown above) are posted along the perimeter. I presume this will allow the grass to grow back and fill in the noticeable patches of dead grass and bare soil.
Memory Mall is well known as the epicenter of UCF tailgating during football season. The Mall is also used frequently during the rest of the school year for concerts, fairs, expos, sports, and other events. Hopefully the rehabilitation will be complete in 57 days, when Knights Football (and tailgating) season begins!
Earlier this year, UCF opened new electric vehicle charging stations next to Memory Mall in parking lot D1. The charging station generates electricity using the solar panels that are mounted to the top of the steel structure. As electric vehicles start to enter the market in the coming years, these spaces will be used for general (student) parking. For now, they’re being used for research and other university uses.
Knights Football kicks off in about 70 days, and fans tailgating at UCF will notice something new at the south end of the Memory Mall this season. The Veterans Commemorative Site is being put together as we speak, and it appears it will be finished by the time football fans invade campus in early September.
Navy veteran Don Reynolds of Sanford designed the new Site (Mr. Reynolds also created the Charging Knight in front of BHNS and the new Charles Millican Statue near Millican Hall). What do you think?
