Students are quick to gush about the school’s architecture, but they are quieter when asked about the actual facilities provided on campus. The Campus Center juggles roles as the administration building, the home to UnCommon Grounds Café, the student bookstore, and a meeting place for students. It is also a center of political activity when clubs set up tables to spread their causes. Sports teams, individual Mawrters, and even professors frequent the fitness center to use its female-friendly equipment, but all three groups demand more machines, especially for use at peak hours. Several sports teams have also pointed out a need for a more extensive renovation of the gym.
Goodhart Auditorium and Thomas Great Hall’s inspiring architecture make grand halls for concerts and speakers. With its convenient location—just a few steps from the main academic buildings—the computer center affords students a quiet and well-equipped workplace. Bryn Mawr is currently renovating Goodhart to make more room for student performance spaces, and a renovation of the gym is planned to add more machines and do something about the dismal lighting and paint.
