We understand the heated competition for program dollars and investment. You need to know that money invested will create value. The Campus Guide is ideal for alumni, friends, potential donors, and prospective students and parents, taking the visitor on a cultural history tour around the grounds and through the halls of your beautiful campus.

“The Campus Guide series enhances our understanding of the impact of these special places, encourages their intelligent conservation, and ensures that their future is as distinguished as their storied past.” — Blair Kamin, Architecture Critic, Chicago Tribune

Lyman Hall, Brown University

“Our most important volunteers love this campus, and the Campus Guide connects them to campus when they are not here, and importantly, helps them to understand how things change while they stay the same.” — Christine Paxson, President, Brown University

“It is a great gift to give every corporation board member, and a great piece of literature that has never before existed about Brown.” — Joan W. Sorenson, Corporation Board member, alumna, and parent, Brown University

East Campus mall, Duke University

“Campuses are increasingly centers of American aspiration. Everyone understands that college education is a key to success. To be ‘on campus’ is to experience the American Dream, a carefully designed environment that privileges people over cars and commerce, a place designed for democracy and community. Research and exploration of campuses is research into the ways in which architecture and design can support out highest ideals as a nation.” — Frances Halsband, Kliment Halsband Architects

Thompson Library, Vassar College

“Our alumni discover the campus etched in their mind’s eye with clarity and affection. In a world in which so much changes, the college offers reassuring continuity.” — Frances D. Fergusson, President, Vassar College

“There’s a lot of competition for the patronage and philanthropy of alumni, parents, and friends. The Campus Guide goes beyond traditional venues, such as invitations, newsletters, and annual reports, and has been an incredible tool to bring home the people who love this campus.” — Todd Andrews, Alumni Relations Vice President, Brown University

Sterling Tower, Yale University

“The Brown Campus Guide is a tasteful and sophisticated tool to steward prospective donors and boost pride of place among alumni.” — Todd Andrews, Alumni Relations Vice President, Brown University

The Campus Guide is an effective steward: five schools have published revised editions of the Campus Guide—all new books that feature the results of successful capital giving campaigns that were assisted by the original Campus Guide.

Battle Hall, University of Texas at Austin

“My special delight in the Campus Guides is their accessibility. How wonderful that the spirit of each place, the particular culture of each campus, is rendered in ways that prospective students, educators, alumni, and, yes, professional designers, can recognize, understand, and appreciate.” — Frances Halsband, Kliment Halsband Architects

“To compete successfully for the attention of our alumni, Brown University placed the Campus Guide at the forefront of the 250th anniversary.” — Todd Andrews, Alumni Relations Vice President, Brown University
