WEBVTT 00:00:00.000 --> 00:00:05.000 Music 00:00:05.000 --> 00:00:08.000 Welcome to Part Two of WOU's Mini Campus Tour. 00:00:08.000 --> 00:00:16.000 Hi I'm Nicole Crane and I'll be your tour guide as we discover more of what Western has to offer students. 00:00:16.000 --> 00:00:23.000 I'm standing in front of Ackerman Hall one of the greenest resident halls ever built. Come on let's take a look inside. 00:00:23.000 --> 00:00:30.000 Ackerman houses more than 300 undergraduate students. It's home to the campus housing office and features classrooms and study space. 00:00:30.000 --> 00:00:38.000 This sustainable living/learning facility has recycling centers on each floor, solar panels on the roof and rainwater receptacles in the ground. 00:00:38.000 --> 00:00:43.000 Even the furniture is special because it came from 00:00:38.000 --> 00:00:43.000 oak trees previously grown on sight. 00:00:43.000 --> 00:00:48.000 Built in 2010 Ackerman is one of the most popular places for students to live on campus. 00:00:48.000 --> 00:00:53.000 Across the street you'll find newest building on campus the DeVolder Family Science Center. 00:00:53.000 --> 00:00:58.000 This facility houses the chemistry department and the anatomy-physiology components of the biology program. 00:00:58.000 --> 00:00:66.000 It has six 1,200-square foot science labs, a cadaver lab, classrooms, faculty offices and study space. 00:01:06.000 --> 00:01:10.000 It's a fantastic building with latest science equipment and gadgets. 00:01:10.000 --> 00:01:14.000 Between Ackerman and DeVolder you'll find the Student Health and Counseling Center. 00:01:14.000 --> 00:01:19.000 When you have aches and pains or the sniffles it's nice to know treatment is available on campus. 00:01:19.000 --> 00:01:22.000 On the north side of campus there's Campus Public Safety. 00:01:22.000 --> 00:01:31.000 WOU has a full-time staff of campus officers who patrol in cars, on foot and in the dorms to make sure students have a safe environment to live and learn. 00:01:31.000 --> 00:01:34.000 Everyone knows all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy. 00:01:34.000 --> 00:01:41.000 That's why we have more than 50 clubs and activity group on campus many of which use this intramural field to enjoy outdoor sports. 00:01:41.000 --> 00:01:50.000 If football, rugby or soccer aren't your thing how about Frisbee golf? Western has a nine-hole Frisbee golf course that takes players in and around the west side of campus. 00:01:50.000 --> 00:01:59.000 Division II sports, a friendly community and professors who love to teach make our time at Western special. What more could we ask for? How about a new College of Education building? 00:01:59.000 --> 00:01:64.000 The Richard Woodcock Education Center is scheduled to open in the fall of 2016. 00:02:04.000 --> 00:02:12.000 The 58,000 square foot building will be a collaborative learning space for teacher education, health & physical education and special education. 00:02:12.000 --> 00:02:19.000 That's all the time we have for this tour. Remember time flies when you're having fun and achieving your dreams. Go Wolves.
