Wells is pleased to share two exciting projects that are taking place on campus this spring. Both are already underway and are expected to be finished before the fall semester.

Ryerson Commons: The Dining Hall and its surrounding lawn are being named to honor President Emerita Lisa Marsh Ryerson '81. Construction of an outdoor terrace that opens from the Dining Hall and takes advantage of the College’s natural setting will begin as soon as the weather allows. It will include a patio suitable for events as well as casual, daily use with comfortable, movable seating, an open fire pit, and WiFi. Funding for this project has been provided by donors to the Lisa Marsh Ryerson ’81 Presidential Fund for Student Success.

Zabriskie Hall Renovations: Beginning this month, Zabriskie Hall will undergo substantial interior renovations designed to transform the historic former science building for use as a modern, technology-rich teaching and learning environment. It will be home to the Susan Wray Sullivan ’51 and Pike H. Sullivan Center for Business and Entrepreneurship, our new as-yet-unnamed institute for sustainability and the environment, a reconceived campus store and café, flexible teaching spaces of varying sizes, multi-purpose lounges and gathering areas, a media arts lab, Mac and PC teaching labs, a lecture hall, faculty offices and much more. An elevator and new, accessible restrooms on each floor are also included in the plans.   



Our mission is for every student to think critically, reason wisely and act humanely as they cultivate meaningful lives. On our beautiful lakeside campus, students gain the knowledge, skills and experience to create their own unique path.
