UNM unveils new Smith Plaza

The heart of the University of New Mexico has a new look. The university unveiled the new Smith Plaza Wednesday.

The project took about eight months and $3.3 million in order for it to transform into a vibrant and comfortable environment.

The new Smith Plaza will offer lounge areas, outdoor classrooms, study areas and cafe seating.

Safety and ADA compliance issues sparked the change.

Student fees and private donors helped fund the renovation.
