If you were hoping your walk to Jester would get less crowded anytime soon, don’t hold your breath. All those bricks lining the Speedway Mall project? Almost all of them are getting ripped up, replaced and repaved — and no one’s really happy about it. Students took to social media immediately after the news broke, quote tweeting and commenting their frustrations away.
Here’s some of the funniest reactions to the story from Twitter and Facebook.
