The campus is very beautiful and not in bad shape. Maintenance keeps it well maintained. If anything becomes broken, it is usually fixed very quickly. The student center was renovated recently; it was completely redone, so everything in there is new. Our athletic centers are kept in good condition, as well.

We have five new dorms for juniors and seniors called Abernethy Village. The Hollifield dorm was also recently renovated, as well as the library. The College recently did all these renovations around campus in a phased system, and they are now all complete. Although there is a game room on campus, there doesn't seem to be much else to entertain students on campus. Students usually go off campus to find something to do.

Coffeehouse on Campus
The Lilly Center for Vocations and Values has a coffeehouse underneath the chapel, which features free coffee, tea, and cookies, and cheap snacks and sodas. Coffee is also available in the library, but they charge per cup, don't have a variety of choices, and are located right next to the Lilly Center.
Movie Theater on Campus
None
"Green" Initiatives
The Center for the Environment building is a sustainable facility, built using recycled and recyclable materials and sustainably grown wood. It also has an environmentally friendly geo-exchange system to heat and cool the building.
There is also the 189-acre ecological preserve, located behind the Center for the Environment and the chapel.
We also have an initiative program called "The Green Pig." If you wear the Green Pig pin and a designated staff or faculty member sees you wearing it, they might just hand you $5. It is an awareness/reminder program about how to live greener and how easy recycling is.
Another program we do every year is a recycling contest called RecycleMania, where our school competes with other schools across the country to see who can recycle the most.
Students on campus also sponsor a Recycled Fashion Show every year, where outfits are made out of recycled material such as newspapers, soda bottles, and aluminum cans.
School Slang
  • Annex: This depends on who you are talking to. For theatre students, the Annex is the Theatre Annex building. For music business students, the Annex is the Music Annex, located two blocks off campus.
  • BZ: Barger-Zartman Residence Hall
  • The Fountain: Refers to the brick-enclosed garden in front of the Cannon Student Center because it used to be a fountain.
  • Goodman: Goodman East or Goodman West. Refers to both dorms.
  • McCorkles: This refers to the dining areas in the upstairs of the student center called the Smoke Stack and Mondo's Subs. This area used to be a place called McCorkles, but now it is two different places.
Traditions
Winterfest Ball: Annual winter semi-formal ball, where students get to relax at the start of spring semester. There is a theme and a DJ that plays hip-hop, pop, and rock music. It's free for students and one guest.
Urban Legends
There is said to be a couple of ghosts haunting buildings across campus, including such buildings as the Lilly Center, the library, Woodson, and Hollifield.
Favorite Things To Do
Students like to hang out on campus in the game room inside of the Cannon Student Center. They also like to hang out and eat at the upstairs dining area in the Student Center, which features two small eateries called Mondo Subs and the Smoke Stack. Many students also like to attend sports and theatre events held on campus.

Clubs and Organizations on Campus
Wigwam is a very active and popular group on campus. Wigwam is the organization that puts on weekend entertainment events on campus, such as hosting comedians and other late-night events.
A majority of students join organizations on campus, and if you want to, it's very easy to start a new club on campus. You need to show that the club has interest, and to become a chartered club, you need to complete a certain amount of social, community, and service activities each semester.
ROTC
Air Force ROTC: No
Navy ROTC: No
Army ROTC: No
