Many would agree that the most attractive sector of campus is Front Campus, which is comprised of the oldest buildings, most dating back to the University's earliest days. This is undoubtedly the most collegiate area, with its columned facades and rolling green space. Students frequent "Blanket Hill," named for its appeal to students wanting to read, sketch, or nap on blankets amidst the trees.
Some newer buildings are not quite as charming, but they are, again, newer. This means that they are clean and relatively up-to-date, a fact that is perhaps most appreciated in recently constructed or renovated dorms. The student center, the recreation center, and the library are utilized by a great number of students, and offer a range of amenities. The University has recently become very committed to maintaining and updating facilities, and the last few years have seen a wave of renovations around campus. Whether or not particular students care more about aesthetics than the average, it's certain that they will find themselves at times very grateful for the practical amenities offered. Overall, the charm that is sometimes traded for clean and functional facilities is more than made up for in the beautiful green spaces, and in the town of Kent itself.
