Shenandoah is bringing back five outdoor learning spaces on main campus this fall after finding great success over the past year with outdoor learning.
The spaces, including a couple large white tents, became a fixture over the past year as a way to space out students and reduce the density of the university community. The spaces provide a spot where students can study, learn or take a break.
The five outdoor learning locations for Fall 2021 are:
- OBT Tent (capacity of 60) on the front lawn outside of Ohrstrom-Bryant Theatre
- Sarah’s Glen (capacity of 36) between Gregory Hall and Abrams Creek
- Smith Library Gazebo (capacity of eight) outside of Smith Library
- Shingleton Gazebo (capacity of 12) outside of Shingleton Gym behind the Brandt Student Center
- Davis Hall (capacity of 14)
Each space will have tables and chairs. All of Shenandoah’s wireless networks are configured to cover the outdoor areas, with the exception of Davis Hall.
Tents will be taken down in the late fall when the weather turns cold. Masking and social distancing are not required outside.
