A dramatic transformation of the past decade has placed Christopher Newport University among the United States’ pre-eminent liberal arts universities. As the youngest university in Virginia, Christopher Newport University boasts a beautiful 260-acre campus nearing completion of a $500 million building campaign. The campus' crowning jewel is the new Ferguson Center for the Arts, which includes a 1,700-seat Concert Hall, a 500-seat Music and Theatre Hall and a 200-seat Studio Theatre and hosts world-class performers. Named for the leader of the expedition to Jamestown, Christopher Newport University will play a pivotal role in Jamestown 2007, the celebration of the 400th anniversary of the settlement.
