Grove City College Highlights Campus Improvements

GROVE CITY, Pa. – When students return to Grove City College for the fall semester, they’ll find some changes to the campus resulting from the college spending $7 million on improvements.

Most noticeable, said vice president of operations Jim Lopresti, will be new turf on the  Robert E. Thorn Field and a new porch and stairs at Breen Student Union.

“We’ve been working hard all summer to complete these projects,” Lopresti said in a prepared statement. “In the end, all of this work will make for a better, safer and more efficient campus that meets the needs of our students, faculty and community.”

Other work, some of which is not yet finished, includes a new roof and HVAC system at Henry Buhl Library, new ceilings in Crawford Hall, improvements to the pools in the Physical Learning Center and landscaping around the steps from Rainbow Bridge to Upper Campus, funded by donations from the class of 2016.

Also among the improvements was the installation of new carpet, lighting and paint at the William H. Allen Jr. Bowling Alley in the Physical Learning Center.

Most of the work was funded by donations from alumni.
