Earlham College continues efforts to revamp Richmond campus


Earlham College is in the midst of a multi-million dollar push to transform the eastern Indiana school.
The Quaker-affiliated liberal arts college has since 2013 completed overhauls on two buildings, erected a baseball stadium, revamped the football field and built a new center for visual and performing arts.
The latest project is a $16.6 million building that houses the Richmond campus' math, physics and computer science departments.
Earlham spokesman Brian Zimmerman tells the Palladium-Item that all of the projects represent more than $70 million in investments in the future of the campus about 65 miles east of Indianapolis.
A $1.5 million renovation is expected to begin soon to convert the campus' Runyan Center into a two-story lounge.
Earlham College has an enrollment of about 1,000 students.
