During the campus launch of Campaign for the Colleges, there will be self-guided tours of 13 new, newly renovated or soon to be renovated campus facilities. They will be identified with special campaign placards throughout the weekend.

Facilities featured include the Bozzuto Boathouse and lakefront facilities, The Finger Lakes Institute, de Cordova and North residence halls, Stern Hall, The Salisbury Center for Career Services in the renovated Trinity Hall, The Admissions Center, McCooey Field, Boswell Field, the Scandling Center, and the Goldstein Family Carriage House and the Katherine D. Elliott Studio Arts Center on the Houghton House grounds. A sign will be posted outside of 603 S. Main St., the future site of The Centennial Leadership Center, which will be established in recognition of William Smith College’s centennial.

Visitors may view the facilities in any order and many of these locations will have activities occurring over the weekend. Maps of the overall “tour” will be available at the Scandling Center.

• On Saturday, Nov. 4, the Goldstein Family Carriage House and the Katherine D. Elliott Studio Arts Center will be dedicated at 10:30 a.m. at the Houghton House Estate.
• Over the weekend, William Smith Field Hockey will host Liberty League playoffs.
• Hobart football will play the Union College Dutchmen at 1 p.m. Saturday on Boswell Field.

The Scandling Center, including Saga and the Café, will be open much of the weekend, serving breakfast, lunch and dinner. Both dining locations will close early on Saturday due to the main campaign ceremony, starting at 6 p.m. in the Bristol Field House.

Campaign for the Colleges seeks to generate funds in support of the strategic plan HWS 2010. This is the largest capital campaign in the history of the Colleges, aiming to raise $160 million. The Colleges are more than halfway toward meeting its goal, with $90 million already raised or pledged.
