Westminster College (Utah)
I visited Salt Lake City in late May 2016 to meet with colleagues at the University of Utah. While there I had the opportunity to drop by the campus of Westminster College. Westminster College is a liberal arts college in the Sugar House neighborhood of Salt Lake City. It opened in 1875. The campus covers about 27 acres and it is very pretty. My schedule did not afford me much time to explore the campus but I really enjoyed my quick visit!
In these pictures, you will see (left to right) Converse Hall, the Giovale Library, the “sit by” statue of Mary Tuck (“Aunt Em”), and the Meldrum Science Center.
Converse Hall is the iconic building on campus – the one that tends to show up in photos of the place and which comes to mind when someone thinks of the institution. The building’s cornerstone was laid on August 23, 1906 and the building was completed in July 1907. The Giovale Library opened in 1997 and has some 47,000 square feet of space on three floors. The Mary Tuck statue is outside of Converse Hall. She and her husband Ralph were patrons of the college and their ashes are buried beneath the bench. The Meldrum Science Center is a LEED© Platinum Certified building.
