WCSU Fine Arts Center

4 posts in this topic


It is on the Westside Campus, a few miles outside downtown. The campus is set on the top of a hill, off Routes 6/202 (Mill Plain Road/Lake Ave. Ext.) The campus is mostly wetlands and on rough terrain. There wasn't a whole lot up there until the last decade, and now it's really starting to get developed with the school's boom.

The Fine Arts building is new part of a major expansion to occur in the next 10-15 years. It will serve as one cornerstone of the proposed Westside quad: the fine arts building, the business and justice/law administration school, the arena, the campus center, and the athletic stadium. With the Fine Arts Center built, the plan is to radically transform Westside: removing parking lots and building more residential facilities, make it look like an actual college campus instead of the quasi-annex it is now.

This building is a huge deal to the university and a good size of the student population. Western has a large music school, plus a theatre and visual arts program which is growing. Their current facilities are scattered across the Midtown campus buildings, all of which need upgrades and renovations. This new building will give them something to brag about and become a better player in those fields.

The west side campus feels currently more like your typical suburban office park than a college setting. I passed by the mid town campus on Saturday and saw a lot of students moving back in. The mid town campus still needs some work because I saw fences in front on the main building you see on White Street. There a great pizza place however across the street from it thats been open for about a year now.
