Abstract

This research looks at the architecture and campus plans of American college campuses. The project goes to the roots of the early founded American colleges and the universities of Oxford and Cambridge. The goal is to detect what the American college campus style is and how it relates to the Virginia Wesleyan campus and the new Greer Environmental Science Center that is being added.
