The University has put in a lot of time and effort into making the facilities more accommodating and exciting for students, and there have been many recent renovations on campus. The main dining hall, The Commons, was renovated to make things more accessible and provide more space, and new doors were added to the outside to improve its appearance. In 2009, Gengras Student Union, where many students spend time between classes, underwent a huge transformation. New food places and larger spaces were added, the cafeteria got new tables and funky bar-style chairs in neon colors, and a game room was put on the lower level and features pool, ping-pong, air hockey, Nintendo Wii, Xbox 360, and a Dance Dance Revolution game, which is very popular among the students. The University also works hard to maintain the aesthetics of campus. Grass and trees are planted in the spring to make the campus look presentable. Due to the weather, these efforts often go unnoticed by the student body, but the facilities staff does its best to make the campus look great.
Some of the most used facilities on campus are the Sports Center and the library. The Sports Center is open every day and is free to use by all undergraduate students. It has a pool, locker rooms with saunas, and boxing equipment on the first floor, and fully equipped fitness rooms with everything from free weights to elliptical machines on the second floor. The center is also home to Chase Arena, where basketball games and special events are held, and an intramural gym for IM basketball and volleyball games. Outside of the center, there is an outdoor pool, baseball and softball field, tennis courts, and several recreational fields. All of the facilities in and around the Sports Center are in good condition. The library does a good job accommodating the students and their needs. Complete with computers, printers, a vast amount of books, and private study areas on all three floors, the library is perfect. There is also a cafeteria conveniently located in front of the library. In general, while many of the buildings on campus are not new (with the exception of the freshman dorm, Hawk Hall), the facilities staff does its best to make sure that they all look good and are in working order.
