Maudine Sanders Student Plaza and Garden and Hawkins Family Terrace
The Maudine Sanders Student Plaza and Garden and Hawkins Family Terrace was made possible by generous support from the Maudine Sanders family, and Bill and Suzanne Hawkins following a recommendation from our alumni society. This space is available for rental by University of Arkansas groups and organizations.
Sanders earned her bachelor’s degree in home economics from the U of A in 1946. When she passed away in 2011, her bequest funded the Maudine Sanders Commons dining and entertainment area, an apparel technology lab, and a commercial culinary kitchen and teaching lab in the HESC Building, and this space outside the AFLS Building, which serves as a study and class area, teaching lab and garden, and meeting and building entry site.
The Hawkins family provided the initial lead gift for the multi-functional space, which serves students, faculty, staff, friends, alumni and the university community.
