The days of battleship grey inside Recitation Hall began to disappear during the fall semester. Cream-colored paint and wooden floors replaced the dark interior and aging carpet on the first floor, significantly brightening the inside of Wittenberg’s second oldest building.
Guests to Recitation will also now see some unique handcrafted additions in the admission area, including a hand-carved wooden kiosk containing an electronic welcome board for prospective students. Large-scale photographs depicting global citizenship, wholeness of person and teaching excellence, all hallmarks of a Wittenberg education, also stand out in wooden frames created by the university’s physical plant. The second and third floors have also been transformed with new paint, and additional upgrades are expected this summer, including completing a wooden replica of the university’s Seal in the center of the floor floor.
