Scott Gymnasium, Smith's venerable facility sitting atop the hill above Ainsworth Gym, is receiving a much-needed fresh coat of paint on its interior walls and ceiling. Meanwhile this month, the Indoor Track and Tennis facility (ITT) is being outfitted with a new roof, replacing its former, leaky lid. Both projects are expected to be completed this month.

Scott Gymnasium is receiving fresh paint inside for the first time in many decades.
The interior of Scott Gym will be much brighter with freshly painted white walls and ceiling, highlighted with school colors, navy blue and yellow.

Extensive staging occupies Scott Gym for the month in order for painters to reach all corners in the 56-foot-high facility.

This month's roof replacement is the first for the ITT since it was built.
  During the initial phase of the project, contractors removed stones from the roof using industrial vacuums.

The stones—or ballast—being removed from the ITT roof played a functional role in the original design of the flat-topped structure, but they will not be replaced.
