History of Campus Buildings

April 24, 2007

For more than a semester I have had one of my beloved student workers (Liz Staino 2007) working on pulling together all of the bits of information on the campus buildings we had into one list.  Today I put it up as a webpage based on that information. When I announced it on the faculty and staff listservs I instantly got positive feedback.

You see when I arrived there was this notebook…  It had a typed list of the buildings about in the order of the current list. (organized by date built) Much of the information came from that list.  But it also had articles from student newspapers, alumni newsletters, individual building histories done by the Druid Society (Hobart Sr. honor society) and the miscellaneous list that seemed to come from buildings and grounds.

Liz pulled all those together for me, and organized “the notebook” with dividers.  She also checked the current Colleges’ webpage for more information and documented where the information came from.  I then formatted the whole thing for the web, and went through the current campus directory to verify addresses and add theme house information to student housing.

A big thank you to Liz.  I believe this page will be well used.
