Campus Updates

W&J works continually to improve residence halls, resources, and other amenities for our students and the campus community. The summer of 2019 is an especially busy time at the College! We are grateful that the majority of these projects were funded by alumni and other generous donors, and were completed at no cost to our students.

The Presidents Row complex is undergoing extensive interior and exterior renovations, including open and collaborative living space on the first floors, central heat and air conditioning, and new, ADA-accessible rooms. The College is also adding more green space in the complex to allow for walkways and outdoor activity areas. Three of these buildings will be completed this summer, with six others scheduled over the next two years.

Recently Completed

Clark Family Library (May 2019)

The newly-renovated exterior of the Clark Family Library

A complete interior renovation and exterior upgrades to the Clark Family Library, formerly U. Grant Miller Library, were completed in May 2019. The main floor information commons offers collaborative research and study space, including conference-style study rooms for student use equipped with wall-mounted monitors that can connect to students’ personal computers. The main floor also includes a new digital classroom, user services desk, and gathering spaces to read and socialize. The lower level houses the expanded Learned T. Bulman ’48 Historic Archives and Museum, as well as quiet study space. The project was funded by a leading gift from Richard (Class of ’68) and Angela Clark, with contributions from other generous donors to the College.
