Western Michigan University has called off a plan to build a new dining hall that would have required the destruction of hundreds of trees, MLive.com reported. Students and faculty members have been campaigning against the dining hall, and the university agreed to call off the original plan and look for alternatives. "As we studied the proposed site and plans for a new dining hall in the valley and received the final environmental assessment by our staff, it became clear that the project would have required the removal of more than 500 trees -- a far larger number than original estimates," said President John Dunn in an e-mail to the campus.
