Or maybe it is the first building to be built when the college was founded, such as Roberts Hall at High Point University in North Carolina.

Roberts Hall was built in 1924, is one of the campus’ landmarks, and can be seen from almost everywhere on campus. Administrative offices, including the Office of the President, are located at Roberts Hall. Plus, commencement takes place on the Roberts Hall lawn each spring accommodating over 8,000 students, faculty and guests.
What helps connect us to a university besides the education and other students, is the visual look of the place. Perhaps it’s the location – urban, town, or rural. The size of the college plays a part. Maybe the campus is beautiful or traditional. Or has an amazing landscape.
The buildings, entrances, chapels, or libraries, some historic and imposing, others modern and sleek, certainly get our attention as well. These distinct campus buildings are part of the college atmosphere which we identify with. The artistic versions in the Campus Cameo Frames are by Eglomise, Inc. or Overly art.
