One of the challenges colleges and universities face when adding or updating facilities is ensuring a cohesive feel throughout the campus. Often times existing structures are 100 years old (or more), so incorporating a new building with modern materials presents unique opportunities to merge the old with the new. Morningside College in Sioux City went through a transformation recently that presented some unique challenges. The campus, for most of its 120+ years, had been focused outward. Entrances to buildings faced out to the streets, not inward to a central campus. Through a major undertaking, the inner campus—previously all parking lots—was reworked as a true central campus. With walking paths, a fountain, and more. That shifted the logical entrance for most buildings from the outer campus to the inner.
