The IMA is a high-tech facility outfitted with playing courts for intramural and pick-up games, a rock wall, swimming pool, indoor track, rooms for classes like yoga and aerobics, a workout room with televisions, a huge variety of machines, and adjacent fields for soccer, football, and other field sports. As a whole, the campus is visually stunning.
The classic brick buildings and quaint brick walkways on the Quad evoke an Ivy-League feel—a look that peaks during spring when the cherry blossoms bloom. Certain buildings are absolute gems. For instance, Suzzallo Library, one of the older buildings on campus, looks as regal and grandiose as a European cathedral, especially when illuminated at night. However, a few architectural eyesores populate the campus, including Kane Hall, a building that was meant to be a modern adaptation of Suzzallo but looks more like a concrete slab. The few architectural anomalies around campus, however, barely dampen the incredible beauty that defines it. Just wait for the rose gardens to bloom and the fountain to spurt skyward, as two rows of trees guide all eyes to the peak of Mt. Rainier.
