The center of campus is more commonly referred to as Red Sq because of its base of red brick. It’s not the coziest plaza, but it fills up with students cheerfully sunning themselves on nice days and it looks impressive at night. Broken Obelisk, the 26ft-high stainless-steel sculpture in the square, was made by noted color-field painter Barnett Newman.

Just below Red Sq is a wide promenade leading to lovely Rainier Vista , with spectacular views across Lake Washington to Mt Rainier.
