Le Quadrilatère Schneider - Schneider Quadrangle

Cet emplacement a reçu son nom en l’honneur d’Herman Schneider, le fondateur de l’éducation coopérative. L’éducation coopérative ou co-op, comme on l’appelle souvent, a été inventée à UC. De nos jours, UC se targue d’avoir les dix meilleurs programmes co-op. C’est un système dans lequel les étudiants alternent les heures passées en classe avec une expérience de travail rémunéré partout sur le globe. Nombre de ces expériences co-op aboutissent à des offres d’emploi fermes après que nos étudiants ont obtenu leur diplomes.

Le Hall Baldwin contient les bureaux principaux pour le collège d’ingénieurs, ainsi que des salles de classe et la bibliothèque du Génie.

La Vieille Chimie (aussi connue comme “Old Chem”) est le site du Département des Langues Romanes et de Litérature. De même que celui des Maths.

Le Hall Swift contient 18 salles de classe “intelligentes”. Il héberge le News Record, notre journal universitaire produit par les étudiants, ainsi que le département des Médiateurs de l’Université, notre Centre de Conseil Pré-Professionnel et notre Programme Universitaire d’Honneurs.


Formally dedicated as Schneider Quadrangle on October 10, 2007, this area is named in honor of Herman Schneider, the founder of cooperative education. This area was previously known as Baldwin Quadrangle (“Baldwin Quad”).

Baldwin Hall contains the main offices for the College of Engineering, along with classroom space and the Engineering Library. UC’s College of Engineering was the first college in the country to offer cooperative education, which was invented at UC by Herman Schneider in 1906. Cooperative education, or co-op, gives students the opportunity to alternate work and class quarters, earning paid, professional work experience while completing their degree.

Old Chemistry (“Old Chem”) is home to the Department of Romance Languages and Literature and our Math department.

Swift Hall includes 18 “smart” classrooms, in addition to offices for student organizations and activities. It houses the News Record, our on-campus, student-run newspaper. It is also home to our University Ombuds department, our Pre-Professional Advising Center, and our University Honors Program.
