Description

The original university master plan featured an academic village centered on a park-like green. This 1838 engraving depicts what the campus would have looked like if the original plan had been finished. Only six of the buildings seen were ever constructed. At the center of the green was the Rotunda, the school's library and auditorium. Behind it is the Lyceum, the main academic building. Dorms line the sides.
