WESTFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – The Westfield State University has removed a campus landmark that was damaged during Sunday night’s Super Bowl celebrations, after the New England Patriots beat the Seattle Seahawks, 28-24.

All that remains of Westfield State’s “Globe Sculpture” is the fence surrounding what had been a campus icon. Students told 22News the University sent out a mass email urging students to pay for repairs to this work of art.

Sophomore Cassidy Moran of Greenfield said she considers it a fair request. She said, “I think the people that were being responsible for the damage should be held accountable, but as a campus community, it should be our job to come together and make it better to help us perform.”

Students are waiting to hear how much repairs will cost. The globe had been a central campus fixture for years.
