There are three main buildings on campus that serve as dormitories now for all AmeriCorps NCCC members throughout the term. The buildings are called Cottage, Palmer and Rice. The campus also has a very large gym that we can use for PT, an indoor pool, a track field and a playground.
Each building has two or three public lounges that people can hang out in and watch TV. The TVs are very nice flat screens. Palmer has wireless internet. Rice is closest to the gym, and Cottage has small rooms for quiet reading. In front of Palmer, there are also bicycles that are free for members to use. I like to bike between buildings and to places in Vinton.
Each team shares a kitchen with other teams. Maple teams 2, 3, and 4 share a kitchen on the first floor of Cottage. Maple teams 5, 6, and 7 share the kitchen on the second floor. The kitchens are very large with two stoves, three microwaves, three fridges and lots of cabinets. Maple 2 and 3 are not on campus so we get to use their kitchen space. It is very nice.
Every building has free laundry. You have to use your own soap, but we don't need any quarters.
The big building in the middle of campus is called Main. That is where the braille school staff works and where some blind or sight-impaired kids live. Sometimes we use their auditorium for our community meetings.
That is all.
