West Campus at Cornell is where all sophomores, juniors, and seniors live who choose to reside on campus. For those of you who decide to come to Cornell and if you live on west after your freshmen year, you will have the chance to live in one of four new dorms, and use a brand new fitness and recreational center. The only problem is, West Campus looks like a hodgepodge of buildings plopped down and squished together. Before West Capus started renovation, it included mostly beautiful gothic style buildings, which are still there. The two new dorms that have been built thus far literally look like factories from the outside (they’re extremely nice and even luxurious on the inside) with their gray roofs, dark red bricks, and charcoal slate sidings…ugggh. This variation and clashes in style would have I. M. Pei throw up if he ever looked across west campus from his famed Herbet F. Johnson Museum of Art. And while I enjoy living inside one of the new dorms on west, it’s one of my pet peeves on how out of touch the new buildings are compared to the existing ones.
