    As i was looking over your pictures it reminded me of when Dr. Jeremiah would show pictures in chapel, now the Apple building. The Building you identified as the Apple building is really the Business Administration Building. Also the Building you identified as Printy Hall is really Williams Hall. Thanks for the look back!

      Thanks for clearing up those buildings. I was reading articles about the college today and some of the answers came up in those articles. CDR makes sense, but it does look different now with the antenna in front. The problem that I ran into was that so many of these buildings have similar appearances to each other and they were not labeled well in the pictures, and what you said makes sense. I did remember Apple had been the chapel before the DMC, and the concept drawing for the library looks similar to Apple but I do see the differences now and it most definitely is Milner. When I labeled Williams as Printy, I was trying to think of any building that looked like that, and since Williams is now offices for a department that I was not part of, I never went there, so I did not think about it. Thanks for the clarifications, I will change the labels.

    The First Building in your article is the CDR Radio building. It was then the Cafeteria and then in my days at Cedarville the PO and Radio Station.

    What an interesting tour! A few more corrections:

    1. You are mistaken about the girls dormitory concept. Given the date in history and the proximity to the lake, my guess is that the drawing is a concept for Maddox Hall, with only two of the four wings shown.

    2. What you have listed as the “Engineering, Nursing, Science Building nearing completion” was I believe simply called the “Science Center” when it was originally built. Engineering and Nursing didn’t start until the late 1980s and early 1990s. When they added on to the Science Center in the early 1990s, the building was renamed to the ENS.

    3. Tyler is the Tyler Digital Communication Center, not “Tyler Hall”.

    4. The Cedarville Athletic Center was never called “Voller” — perhaps you are confusing that with Roberts Weslyan’s AC?

    5. The “old chapel” (slide 15) is now the Human Resource and Safety Center.

    6. Williams houses the Education department.

    Please update your titles in the tour to correct what has been mentioned in these comments (mine and those before) so others don’t get confused!

    Thanks again!
