A 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.
