It's no secret that the College of Wooster's campus is impressive. Students, alumni, and community members can't say enough about how much they love to walk through the College in the fall as the leaves are changing or down Beall Avenue in the summer when the flowers are in full bloom. Wooster may be an old college, but it has been beautifully maintained. The stonework highlights the impressive architecture of the academic buildings, and although buildings like Kauke Hall have undergone huge renovations to modernize the classrooms and add computer labs and cafés, the outside of the buildings have kept their iconic and traditional look. In fact, the College has made it a priority to keep facilities up-to-date. As a result of this, however, it often seems as if the College is in a constant state of construction. A new residence hall, Gault Manor, was built in 2008, while in 2009, Babcock reopened after renovations were completed. In 2010, Lowry Center was renovated, and the Scot Center, Wooster's most recent athletic facility, opened in January 2012.
There are still buildings on campus that could use a little love, but the College's hard work to improve the campus's facilities is obvious. The construction noise can definitely get in the way of your mid-afternoon naps, but the finished product is worth the sacrifice.
