When visitors come to Montreat College, they often remark on their surprise at its beauty. Nestled in the mountains, the campus is tiny but pretty, with stone buildings and a small lake (that belongs to the conference center) in front of it. Nearly all of the buildings are stone, though Gaither Chapel is particularly beautiful—inside, the mica in the stone makes the walls sparkle and glimmer. It's particularly striking in the chapel room—the wood décor, stained-glass windows, and stone walls sparkling with mica make for a beautiful sight.
The dorms, while they do have some issues such as drafty windows and leaks, are decent and large enough to host students comfortably. Large lobbies are equipped with HD TVs, welcoming impromptu group movie nights. Belk Campus Center is also equipped with an HD TV, as well as two computer labs (though the upstairs one is locked at night/on weekends). The library also has a computer lab and a writing center open most evenings, as well as private study rooms. The technology in the library—and everywhere else—is far from state-of-the-art, though. The newest amenities the College boasts are the HD TVs and new furnishings in each of the dorm lobbies, as well as an updated scanning system for chapel, convocation, and meals. The computers and printers don't always work, but most of the other equipment works well. Although it currently has Wi-Fi, the College is working on improving the signal strength all over campus, including in the dorm rooms, where it has been previously unusable. While neither the facilities nor the equipment is state-of-the-art, it is more than adequate for student needs.
