At a time when increasing numbers of faculty at residential colleges live out of town and when even college presidents are choosing to live some distance off campus, Wooster's President's Home stands for the central involvement of the administrative staff in the College's development. The President's Home is a landmark in the heart of campus and the site of numerous gatherings of students, parents, faculty, staff, trustees, alumni, and a range of off-campus visitors. Surrounded by the music and chemistry buildings, the science library, and the alumni house, it is situated to play a major role in the life of the campus.
President's Home was completely remodeled in 1969 and significantly refurbished in 1996.
