Campus Upgrades Focus on Student Life, AcademicsA number of needed repairs and improvements were completed during the 2012 summer break that will enhance the living and learning experience for all VWC students. Many were structural and/or cosmetic including the replacement of several sidewalks and paved areas, new windows in student housing, fresh paint and carpet, improved drainage systems, heating and air conditioning upgrades and more. A special project requested by our students, which added or improved wireless connectivity in all residence areas on campus, also expanded internet access. New and replacement computers in a number of locations include a new 22-station computer lab on the first floor of the Hofheimer Library. Finally, a workroom on the second floor of the Batten Center has been transformed into a state-of-the-art classroom with swiveling, mobile “Node Chairs,” an upgraded whiteboard, and a fully electronic podium that displays monitor, television, Blu-Ray/DVD and a document camera to an 80-inch flat screen.
