Chatham's facilities are well maintained and clean. The Athletic & Fitness Center is the newest building on campus, as well as one of the most beautiful and useful. Built in 2004, this $19 million facility serves as a place for students to exercise and practice. It features a competition-sized pool, suspended running track, dance and aerobics studio, rock-climbing wall, and two squash courts. The library is a bit hard to get through, but students can use programs such as EZ-Borrow, the interlibrary loan service, or online databases to find the information they need for their projects. Café Rachel and Weathervane Snack Bar are great places to study or meet friends. And, not only are Chatham’s facilities nice to look at, but they are also accessible and accommodating to students with disabilities—there are elevators and wheelchair ramps in most buildings, with the exception of the Art & Design Center. Overall, Chatham's buildings are practical, useful, and add to the beauty of the campus.
Students have more than enough to do on campus, especially since the Chatham Activities Board (CAB) revamped its programming strategies. The Tuesday Night Edge program offers a range of activities from planting bamboo to throwing pies at resident assistants. Late Night Mayhem is held every Thursday and offers different events and private screenings of movies. With on-campus programming and off-campus excursions, there's always enough for students to do.
