Though still in its early phases, the Campus Renewal program is already transforming and preserving some of the most beloved spaces on campus. This past summer, a fully renovated Schneider reopened as a center for student services—housing offices for the registrar, class deans, student financial services, study abroad, and more. The renovation restored the building’s historic features—including the wooden trusses and a newly uncovered original fireplace formerly hidden behind a wall—while also providing sleek and airy offices and meeting spaces. In Founders and Green, a Phase I renovation was also completed during the summer months, bringing updated faculty offices, modernized classrooms, and improved accessibility, including a new ramp in the area where Founders meets Green on the second floor. Finally, the renovation of the home at 99 Pond Road was finished. The College purchased this 1730 house and its 10 acres along the lake in 2010, in an effort to preserve the natural landscape bordering the main campus. It will be home to the provost; College functions will also be hosted there.
