The amphitheatre was completed by Works Progress Administration workers in 1941.
In the heart of campus is the beautiful Amphitheater.
This area was completed by Works Progress Administration workers in 1941. When it was first constructed, it was a place bustling with activity. Students sat on the grassy steps, assuming the role of university troubadours singing to the strum of their guitars; aspiring actors practiced on the white, eight-columned stage; clubs and organizations even met on the shallow steps. On warm, pretty days, when the trees surrounding the theater were in full bloom, campus events were held on stage for everyone to see while students mingled around the theater grounds. The Amphitheater is used for student assemblies and staff picnics and is still a wonderful place to enjoy the sunshine with friends.
