Myers maintains campus for many years

By Walker Polivka, Contributing Writer

Walking around campus, you see buildings named after Shaw, Krise, Campbell and several other important West Liberty benefactors. Every building has a unique story. One building can be generally overlooked. Located behind the ASRC, the Myers Maintenance Building is filled with history. Just who was Myers and why did we name a building after him?

Taking a look at WLU buildings and history

By Josh Smith, Contributing Writer

West Liberty University is home to a variety of unique and historic buildings. From tall, white pillars, to beautiful brick structures, the hilltop houses some historically-rich buildings, ranging from campus facilities and residence halls. Currently, WLU offers five dormitories on the campus grounds: Hughes Hall, Bonar Hall, Curtis Hall, Beta Hall and Krise Hall; two former dorms, Boyd and Rogers Halls, are expected to re-open next school year.

Students eat, sleep and live in these buildings, but most, if not any, do not know where they got their names. In this article, I will state the brief history and where WLU’s various dormitories and campus facilities got their names.
