The north campus area contains the fine arts and athletic facilities, as well as landscaping. The central campus area has 10 buildings, with a surrounding wooded quadrangle/oval area. South campus contains residence halls next to ravines and is connected to other campus areas by the ravine path, Slough Path. No single style of architecture dominates. Rather, the campus reveals clearly the "depth of time" of changing styles in American college architecture and campus design from the 1880s to the 2000s. This authentic "depth of time" in this cultural landscape is its strength. The master plan was completed in the 1970s by Perkins, Fellows & Hamilton (Chicago, IL) and was updated by Bulfinch, Richardson & Abbott in the mid-1980s.
