The Quad is a large open space on campus that is surrounded by Daniels Hall to the south, Morgan Hall and Alumni Field to the west, Harrington Auditorium to the north, and the Bartlett Center to the east.

Crisscrossing The Quad is the Centennial Walkway, a network of brick sidewalks built in the summer of 1991 to observe the 100th anniversary of the Alumni Association (many of the bricks are inscribed with the names of alumni and friends). Prior to Centennial Walkway, the walking paths across The Quad were paved.

The Quad is the site of such major campus events as Commencement, Reunion and Homecoming. Quadfest was so named because many of its events take place on or around The Quad.
