The Cistern Yard

Live view from Randolph Hall of The Cistern Yard. The Cistern Yard (with the raised, oval Cistern in the foreground) is the literal and figurative center of campus. Each spring, this is where the College’s commencement ceremonies take place. And, in late May and early June each year, this space serves as a performance venue for jazz artists during the Spoleto Festival USA. During some Spoleto performances, the blinds in this window may be closed.
