Davis, Jeff – About Campus, 2011
College campuses look different today, at the beginning of the twenty-first century, than they did 50 years ago. The buildings and signage may look almost the same, but the students who learn in those buildings definitely do not. Increased access and the diversity movement have resulted in younger and older students sitting side by side in the…

There is likely no campus facility where students spend more time than a residence hall--not the student union, an academic building, or an athletic facility.

Their model began with acknowledging the…
