西格玛广场 - Sigma Sigma Commons

这一整块区域以前是一个巨大的停车场. 但是因为学校的总体设计要求校园里有更多的绿地, 所以几乎所有的停车都被搬进了多层停车场, 然后我们有了更多的这样的绿地. 学校允许辛大学生从一年级开始就可以有汽车. 每季度交一次停车费. 具体的价格根据学生选择不同的停车设施而定.

校园绿地的较高处叫做西格玛广场. 它是一个很受学生欢迎的聚集地点. 同时, 这里每学年也举办很多的校园活动, 像是乐队音乐会和节日活动, 包括每年一度的西格玛狂欢节.

工程研究中心里设有本科生和研究生的项目和研究实验室. 它是由迈克.格拉夫, 辛大最著名的校友, 世界最重要的设计师之一所设计.


The upper part of Campus Green is called Sigma Sigma Commons. It is a popular gathering place for students and a site for many campus events throughout the year, like band concerts and festivals, including the annual Sigma Sigma Carnival.

This entire area used to be a huge parking lot, but UC's Master Plan called for more green spaces on campus, so almost all parking has been moved to multi-level garages to make way for spaces like this one. Students at UC are allowed to have cars, even as first year students, and there is a quarterly fee for parking. The exact price depends on which parking facility students choose.

Morgens Hall and Scioto Hall, which contain housing for graduate and non-traditional students and their families, are currently closed for renovation. Turner Hall and Schneider Hall are examples of suite-style housing, where students have a bedroom, common area, and bathroom that are shared only with their fellow suitemates. They offer general student housing, as well as housing opportunities for students in the University Honors Program and for UC athletes.

The Engineering Research Center houses graduate and undergraduate engineering programs and research labs. It was designed by Michael Graves, one of UC’s most distinguished alumni, who has became one of the world’s most important architects.
