Abstract

Description

Blair Arch: One of the most beloved spots on campus is Blair Arch, at the juncture between Blair and Buyers halls. Built in 1897, Blair Hall marked the western edge of campus for 20 years and its architects, the firm Cope & Stewardson, were masters of the Collegiate Gothic style. The arch also served as a gateway to the University for passengers disembarking from the train into town. Due to its exceptional acoustics, Blair Arch now is the setting for performances by more than a dozen student a cappella groups; it is also the site of traditional step sings by the freshman class at the beginning of the academic year and by the senior class before Commencement.
