Wallpaper Wednesday takes a campus tour
This week we have your choice of EMU wallpapers, and neither of them has anything to do with athletics.
Option A is a Kenneth Bailey photo of the Eastern Michigan University seal on a building window, with a wintry campus scene in the reflection. Bonus points if you can identify the spot on campus by the reflection!
Built in 1924 and designed in a Colonial Revival style with Neoclassical details by Smith Hinchman & Grylls, Roosevelt Hall, originally Roosevelt High School, was named after President Theodore Roosevelt. In 1973 Roosevelt was remodeled and expanded to be used as EMU classroom space. Today the building houses the Military Science Department and the Department of Human, Environmental, and Consumer Resources. The building has a gun range in the basement that can accommodate 20 people at a time. Above the main front entrance the words “Roosevelt High School” can be seen in stone.
