Almost all of the dorms have been renovated within the last 10 years and have been very well done. The dinning halls are above average and continue to improve. Classrooms are bright and airy in most buildings, while still maintaining the charm of the older buildings. The Rec Plex is newer and very nice. The true heart of campus is the student neighborhood, university owned houses and apartments that house a vast majority of upperclass students.
