Campus and Residential Renewal
A residential and campus renewal fund is critical to ensure a full college experience, and that Elizabethtown remains competitive among peer institutions. Modern, updated, and functional living spaces are of great interest to prospective and current students, and remain a top consideration when students and families compare colleges. The look of our campus grounds, buildings, and dorms often dictate what the first impression to our prospective students and families will be, and it’s our aim to make it a positive one.
Elizabethtown’s residential facilities are aging and funding is needed to enhance the living experience on campus and create meaningful communities for our students.
Several of the residence halls have been remodeled in the past twenty years to feature new main lounge spaces. In many dorms, however, the bathrooms and rooms have been left untouched for fifty years. Updated dorms allow students to feel comfortable and supported in their home away from home. All of our residential halls require updates to make them more environmentally friendly, including new windows, water conservation and energy-saving strategies.
Additionally, this fund would allow us to increase our campus beautification initiatives. This might include the addition of outdoor living and learning spaces, additional landscaping around campus, or improving existing spaces. We want our campus to look the way it makes us all feel.
Many students and alumni say they decided to attend Elizabethtown College because of the way they felt when they set foot on campus. They fell in love with our beautiful campus from the very first day. We want that feeling to be extended to everyone that visits our home.
From the start, we want prospective students and visitors to see the same campus that we all love. In order to make that a reality, our campus needs routine maintenance, whether that means planting new trees and revitalizing gardens, creating more outdoor spaces for students to enjoy during the warmer months, or even repaving roads and sidewalks.
There are endless possibilities to provide opportunities for making campus look or feel better. Giving to the Annual Fund allows day-to-day operations around campus to remain a priority while donating designated gifts to Campus and Residential Renewal allows for larger projects.
