PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION

The campus consists of a park-like natural setting, adjacent to Petrifying Springs County Park, with distinctive and visually cohesive buildings that were carefully sited within the 720-acre woods and  meadow campus. The orthogonal and rectilinear buildings that make up the campus core are linked by a second-level concourse that boldly frames views from outside as well as from within. The consistent modern style provides a cohesiveness and design unity that is rare among university campuses.  Non-contiguous properties include four natural conservancy areas that are used by the biological sciences and geology departments.
