Old Crescent Academic Working Group
The Old Crescent is home to the oldest buildings on the 1,933-acre Bloomington campus, including:
- Owen Hall, built in 1884
- Wylie Hall, built in 1884
- Maxwell Hall, built in 1890
- Kirkwood Hall, built in 1894
- Lindley Hall, built in 1902
- Student Building, built in 1905
- Franklin Hall, built in 1907
- Swain Hall (East), built in 1910
- Bryan Hall, built in 1936
- Swain Hall (West), built in 1957
Today, only about half of these buildings are used for academic units. The remainder is used to house administrative offices. The Old Crescent Academic Working Group will assess their current utilization and examine whether and how they may be converted for use as instructional space.
The Old Crescent Academic Working Group will issue a report on its findings to President McRobbie in early 2011.
