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.
' 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.
