Earlham College continues efforts to revamp Richmond campus

RICHMOND, Ind. (AP) – 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.
