Peace Grove

The Peace Grove was dedicated during the 1991 Reunion Weekend by the Class of 1970. In 1970 the College's administration responded to student protests against the Vietnam War and shootings at Kent State University by closing campus two weeks early and cancelling commencement, allowing students to travel and engage in social activism throughout the nation.

The Peace Grove was dedicated in memory of that time and hope of peace; the rock at its center bears an engraved plaque stating "May the diverse species of trees, which represent the many differing opinions of an outspoken class, grow tall and provide the campus community a place to contemplate and appreciate the beauty of a peaceful world."

Sebring-Lewis Hall

Sebring-Lewis Hall, opened in 1999, seats 338 people in a 4,050 square-foot space. It is the home of most music department performances and numerous guest artist events. One of the first ensembles to perform in the hall, the American String Quartet, described it as "one of the two or three best halls in the country for chamber music." The rich colors and cherry wood details in the hall make it as beautiful aesthetically as it is acoustically. Electrically adjustable curtains in the upper back of the hall allow for a tunable acoustic. A well-equipped control room and numerous computer data and sound connection points within the hall itself allow Sebring-Lewis to accommodate experimental computer music as well as chamber and ensemble performances. 

Roberts Theatre

The Roberts Theatre semi-thrust stage, seating 450, was renovated and restored under the design of Cesar Pelli and Associates (New Haven, CT). The project was completed in 2000.

Faulconer Gallery

The Faulconer Gallery in Bucksbaum presents exhibitions year-round, ranging from the annual Student Art Salon to traveling exhibitions from world-renowned artists. Students work with the gallery’s professional staff  as interns, gallery attendants, and arts outreach providers for the community. Classes often examine the College's art collection in the Print and Drawing Study Room in Burling Library, and may curate exhibitions drawn from the collection.
