Sul Ross State University presented a unique opportunity for Freese and Nichols through the development of its campus Master Plan. The opportunities included the campus’ natural and native landscape, its distance from a major Texas city, innovative campus sustainability and its surplus of facility space. The Master Plan addresses the connectivity between student housing and the academic core, efficient use of the student center, the “Town and Gown,” relocation of the football and softball stadiums and bridging the gap between the main campus and Range Animal Science complex. Campus sustainability options played a major role in this Master Plan, as Freese and Nichols investigated how the University could take advantage of natural elements in the region by creating outdoor learning spaces and focusing on the student experience.
