In 2009, the school renovated the stadium and installed a pedestrian walkway through campus, lined with maple trees and park benches. The old stone buildings and flowering trees make the campus look beautiful, and the wide open lawns (complete with tire swing) make it comfortable. That’s how Geneva’s facilities are: old and comfortable. Geneva lacks the resources to update every year, so you won’t find much that’s “state-of-the-art”—some of the paint peels in Old Main and the Student Center’s exterior is straight out of the '70s—but the laboratories and classrooms are modern, and the fieldhouse offers a full gymnasium and two racquetball courts for student use. The Fitness Center includes a cardio room with four treadmills, three stairsteppers, three bikes, two ellipticals, and a rower; an aerobics room with wall mirrors; and a weight room with cable machines and dumbbells up to 100 pounds. Be warned: it gets swamped between 2 p.m. and 5 p.m.
Geneva does lack a good venue for the visual and performing arts. While the campus offers the Bagpiper Theatre and the Geneva Studio Theatre, both are small and rundown. Art classes are relegated to an obscure room in the basement of Old Main, with one half-hearted art display each semester. Overall, Geneva’s facilities aren’t flashy or state-of-the-art, but they’re lived in and comfortable, like a favorite pair of jeans—and they’re improving as fast as the College can manage. But students don’t feel like they’re missing out; the community and academics make up for the need of a fresh coat of paint.
