Next generation of Newing and Dickinson

From staff reports

If you haven't been to campus for a while, you'll probably be amazed when you see the area taht's home to Newing College and Dickinson Community.

In their new form, the Newing and Dickinson communities have a neighborhood design. Newing's four new residence halls are fully open for business. And, this fall, the state-of-the-art Chenango Champlain Collegiate Center opened its doors, offering students meeting rooms, a lounge with a gas fireplace, a computer center and an amazing dining hall (shared by Newing and Dickinson).

Chenango Champlain Collegiate CenterC4 (as the building is known around campus) also houses the Dickinson Community office, Dickinson Town Council office, CoRE room (now called CoREtex) and a large multi-purpose room with a stage used by Dickinson Community Players. Read more about this facility.   

The next generation of Dickinson Community residence halls is taking shape. Concrete foundations for four new buildings are being poured. You can see live webcam views of the construction.

The four new buildings will each hold about 350 students, slightly larger than each pair of existing Dickinson halls and will be complete in fall 2013. The buildings are arranged around a central quad, with the co-rec field in the center and benches and trees designed to encourage residents to come outside and spend time together. Across the quad, closest to the trees near Lake Lieberman, will be the gazebo. The main walkway from the quad leads to C4.

For now, Johnson and O'Connor halls are serving as office space for construction staff -- no longer able to fit trailers on campus -- as well as those displaced from their offices because of construction across campus.

The four remaining residence halls in Dickinson are grouped into sister buildings - Digman-Rafuse and Champlain-Whitney - in anticipation of the move to larger buildings because it allows the student government and the ResLife staff to engage with and involve a larger group of residents.

At Homecoming 2011, Dickinson held a ceremony to rededicate The Object, at which several alumni added plaques bearing their names to the structure. To purchase a plaque, visit the Dickinson website. If you place your order by Aug. 15, 2012, you can install it at the Homecoming 2012 ceremony planned for Saturday, Oct. 13.

Newing College banksIf you lived in Newing and want a keepsake of your time in this residential community, you can purchase banks made from mailboxes salvaged from your old dining hall. The Alumni Association and Uncommon Goods (founded by David Bolotsky '85) have partnered to offer you this unique keepsake. The banks are handmade from oak and have a professional locking system and brass coin slot. Order a bank today - it makes a great holiday gift!
