As a general rule, when it comes to facilities, the ones that are good are very, very good, but the ones that are older could use a little work. Facilities on campus are at their best for students involved in the sciences or the theater. The newest, biggest, and most impressive additions are the von Liebig Science Center and the Halbritter Center for Performing Arts. "Von RealBig," as it is often called, is a state-of-the-art science geek's dream (and the home of Jitters). Halbritter is the physical manifestation of the small but skyrocketing theater department. Students frequent the gym, and athletes or the athletically-inclined on campus are generally pleased with the actual facilities provided, though those who aren't members of varsity teams will sometimes gripe about their ability to access the equipment.
While there is much to applaud about the facilities on campus, there are a few complaints, as well: The lack of a true student center tops the list, and the art studios and Good Hall—while they get the job done—fall far short of campus's newest additions. As for a student center, Muddy Run Café tries hard to fill in, but an actual center for students to congregate is nonexistent, and it's a noticeable absence. But overall, all of the facilities are quite nice and very well-kept, regardless of their age.
