If you were to go on a tour of SU, the tour guides would deliberately highlight certain facilities on campus and avoid others. They'd show you every nook and cranny of the Schine Student Center, while merely breezing by Archbold Gymnasium. Schine has a lot to offer: the food court is impressive, the bookstore is great for picking up class materials, and there is a box office for buying tickets to any lectures, concerts, or other shows that pass through the SU campus. Also in Schine is the Panasci Lounge on the second floor-perfect for relaxing, sleeping, studying, or just watching the beautiful scenery of SU during a snowfall. Also in the student center is a coffee lounge, a large auditorium where concerts are held, and a computer lab. The buildings on the campus, especially the older ones, can be breathtaking in their architecture. The Crouse building looks like a castle, and the Hall of Languages is a beautiful piece of history. The buildings of SU epitomize how a college campus should look.
Archbold Gymnasium is quite a bit less appealing for the average student. Although the pool is notable in its size, the actual exercise area is small and located on a converted basketball court. There is a wide selection of treadmills and elliptical machines, but the free weights are sprawled about the gym and the circuit-type machines are all typically being used. A one-hour workout can turn into a two-hour affair simply because of the lack of equipment and organization.
