Uniquely Webster:

The site of the City of Schenectady's former library, Webster is aptly designated "Focus-Study" for those students who request a quiet residential area conducive to academic pursuits and a substance-free living environment. This building is named for College President Harrison Webster (class of 1868 and President 1884–1894).
