Campus construction and an access road (University Boulevard) from Lake Avenue Extension (U. S. Route 6) were completed to the new campus in the late 1980s - early 1990s. The bedrock is mapped as Precambrian (Grenville age) hornblende gneiss and other amphibole-rich metamorphic rocks and calc-silicate granulite. Coordinates are for the center of campus, which may not be where minerals were collected.
