S: D'YOUVILLE COLLEGE
2: SHADOWS | OF THE PAST
3: "To preserve health is a moral and religious duty, for health is the basis of all social virtues. We can no longer be useful when we are not well." — Samuel Johnson | VISIONS | OF THE FUTURE
5: 1874 KOESSLER ADMINISTRATION BUILDING The original D’Youville building remains the keystone of the campus. Familiar to us all are its stately corridors, dramatic stairwell and beloved chapel, which have remained unchanged through the years.
7: 1967 DR. PAULINE N. ALT BUILDING The Alt Building houses classrooms, faculty offices and lecture rooms and also features state-of-the-art gross anatomy and physical therapy labs. The lower level offers a much-used coffee shop for students and faculty.
9: 1968 MARGUERITE HALL Marguerite Hall houses all freshman and other undergraduate students and also provides support services such as the college health center.
11: 1969 THE D'YOUVILLE COLLEGE CENTER & MADONNA HALL The lounges in the College Center and Madonna Hall have been renovated, preparing them for the academic presentations and large receptions that are held in these two buildings. The Center is the hub of college social life, providing food service in the upper-level Porterview Room, and is the site of the campus bookstore.
13: 1999 THE MONTANTE FAMILY LIBRARY The original Holy Angels Academy building has undergone adaptive reuse: By retaining its classical east facade and adding a contemporary west facade, which faces the Fargo Avenue core of academic buildings, the best of this fine structure has been preserved for both the College and West Side neighbors. In addition to books and reference resources, it provides an extensive computer lab.
15: 2001 THE BAUER FAMILY ACADEMIC CENTER The Bauer building is instantly recognizable by its soaring banner of St. Marguerite and its bright canopy that provides a covered walkway connecting Alt, Bauer and D’Youville’s original building, now called the Koessler Administration Building. Bauer houses classrooms, lecture halls, labs and the chiropractic department's on-campus clinic.
17: 2003 GYMNASIUM DYC has built a beautiful gymnasium along with expanded locker rooms and exercise facilities. Growing interest in exercise science and fitness, coupled with long experience in healthcare and the sciences, allow the gym to fit easily into the College’s curricular offerings.
19: SUMMER 2005 THE KAVINOKY THEATRE Substantial improvements to the Kavinoky – a state-of-the-art lighting system, new curtains and an apron added to the front of the stage – allow for bolder staging of productions.
21: WINTER 2005 STUDENT APARTMENT COMPLEX The new residence building houses 165 students and is built in apartment-style design. Neighborhood residents find that the building lends significance to Buffalo’s West Side and enhances Connecticut Street particularly.
23: SPRING 2006 DYC EDUCATION CENTER The former Amici Lodge on Connecticut Street has been converted into classroom space for undergraduate and masters’ degree candidates in education. Both students and faculty find it a welcome addition to the overcrowded classrooms they were assigned to previously.
25: SPRING 2007 D'YOUVILLE CHIROPRACTIC HEALTH CENTER A modern off-campus building has been purchased and remodeled providing both parking and 7,000 sq. ft. of high-tech chiropractic clinic space. Located in North Buffalo, it is one of five D’Youville community sites that offer chiropractic as an integral part of modern health care.
27: SPRING 2010 D’YOUVILLE ACADEMIC CENTER Standing on a former campus parking lot, the new 88,000 sq. ft. structure houses DYC’s new School of Pharmacy, labs, classrooms, admissions offices and a high-tech computer center. The building has become a symbol of the “new century” of D’Youville’s life.
29: OUR GROWTH AND THE IMMEDIATE FUTURE The Fargo Avenue Drop-off Project will create a sense of unified campus. However, in order to accommodate the increased number of students at D’Youville, there must be a continued search for appropriate property for expansion purposes. In the near future, more space will be required for academic programs, athletic fields, research and, of course, additional parking.
31: The first building still stands tall and now shelters the figure of St. Marguerite d’Youville on its lawn. The charism of Mother Marguerite is felt everywhere and her Mission remains the College’s Mission today as we go forward. | Amid all this change certain things still abide...
