A refreshing summer

Goshen College continued its work in revitalizing campus structures and grounds this summer, making needed campus improvements to enhance service to and quality of life for students in living and academic areas. The renovation projects are financed by a bond issue, distinct from the college’s operating budget, that allows for the college to address deferred maintenance projects supported by the college’s board of directors.

Project Log

' The renovated cafeteria in Westlawn now
featurescarpeting in dining areas, enhanced lighting, air conditioning, lounge space around two fireplaces, a distinct meeting room and an outdoor patio.

' In Kulp Hall, the colleges oldest standing residential building, the first floor was reconfigured to accommodate three small group housing units that include kitchen and living areas. Updates were made to common living spaces on the second and third floors.

' The bathrooms in Yoder Residence Hall were renovated and updated, a preview of whats in store for Miller and Kratz halls, which are being renovated during this school year.

' A sprinkler system was installed to enhance lawn
maintenance and increase the campus aesthetic.

' Weight training by Maple Leaf athletes and coaches paid off when they put in many hours moving furniture across campus throughout the renovation process.

' Under construction soon: A connecting structure
between Miller, Kratz and Yoder Residence Halls, which will include a coffee bar, lounges, kitchenettes, outdoor patios and an elevator for accessibility all to be completed by the fall of 2004. The background for these pages is a blueprint for the connector.

We welcome you to stop by for a campus tour of old, new and renovated spaces.
