Sikora Wells Appel Haddonfield, New Jersey Rowan College at Burlington County Mt. Laurel, N.J. At the heart of Rowan College at Burlington County's campus, Sikora Wells Appel created a new Quad that was designed in concert with the Student Success Center. As the central activity hub, the Student Success Center Plaza was created with flexibility in mind and accommodates daily outdoor dining, outdoor classes, and other events. The Success Center Plaza boasts nearly 400 linear feet of amphitheater bluestone steps in addition to large- scale concrete seat wall planters, which are filled with ornamental grasses, perennials, shrubs and flowering trees. By contrast, the Grove is a more intimate space, incorporating a variety of shade trees, groundcover planting, stone dust gravel and moveable tables and chairs. A network of new walking paths serves to connect students to each building, the parking lots and other areas of campus.
