Vivyan Tran ’10, Julia Bradley ’10, and Amanda Hund ’10 live in Burton 131, prime real estate just inside the door linking the residence hall to Sayles-Hill Campus Center. Recently they spent some time dreaming about the perfect student residence, or what they call “the Harry Potter way of living.” For them, it’s all about the shared community spaces, with some amenities thrown in for fun.
Gifts in support of facilities: $90 million
Spaces that are vacated due to the relocation of departments and classrooms into new arts facilities will require renovation to support their changed purposes. Other academic buildings require the addition of computer and multimedia technology to adapt to current pedagogies.
A focus on sustainability will provide opportunities for Carleton to further implement viable campus environmental initiatives while integrating rigorous study of environmental issues across the curriculum. Support for the environmental and technology studies program and the arboretum will increase student and faculty engagement with global sustainability initiatives and make permanent the funding sources for those vital programs.
