It's been a busy summer of construction on the Smith campus. This final Gate construction update takes a look at the Equestrian Center, the college's riding facility, which has received some cosmetic improvements (view a Campus Camera video about the Equestrian Center); and the parking lots abutting the Indoor Track and Tennis facility (ITT), which have been treated to fresh new surfaces. In addition (not pictured), the restroom in John M. Greene Hall is being modified for handicap-accessibility.

The Equestrian Center, distinguished by the life-sized sculpture of a proud horse at its entrance, is located off of Earle Street. The facility was completely repainted with fresh coats of barn red. At right above, painters cover the windows with plastic before applying the final coat of paint to the horse barn.

Before painting the Equestrian Center buildings, they all had to be power washed, to remove cobwebs, dirt and debris from windows and wall surfaces. At right above: all ruts have been smoothed from the driveway at the entrance to the center.

The athletic facilities were the focus of several updates this summer, including the painting of Scott Gym and the installation of a new roof on the ITT.
  The parking lots were repaved just in time for the School for Social Work commencement on August 19, and the arrival of new students Aug. 31.
