The 71,000-square-foot Wise Campus Center serves as the social hub of the Norwich campus. Nestled against a backdrop of the Northfield Mountains, the jeweled-glass-box building offers community members spectacular views of the campus and the surrounding natural areas of Central Vermont.
The WCC is modern in both appearance and functionality — students, staff and faculty can connect to the wireless network, grab a quick meal at the Mill snack bar and catch a film in the screening room.
But the center also affords patrons the benefits associated with a small college community — quiet sitting areas near fireplaces, faculty and student lounges, a recreation room and top-notch dining areas. Other amenities provided in the campus center include the University’s twenty-one plus Partridge’s Pub, a double-height winter garden, bookstore and multiple meeting rooms.
The WCC’s benefits aren’t all on the inside. During warmer months, the dining terrace offers a cool spot to enjoy an iced coffee or lighter fare. The adjacent quad becomes the University’s recreation hot-spot — great for a game of Frisbee or a little people watching. When the weather turns cold, the quad features a skating rink, and an external-facing fireplace is the perfect warm-up stop.
