CC students build the library in Minecraft!

Colorado College students, sent home at Spring Break to help stop the spread of Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19), are recreating the whole campus virtually in Minecraft! Yes! They are! And Tutt Library is already built!

Eliza Merrall, Katie Wang, Arity Sherwood, Patrick McGinnis, and Daniel Turevski are the freaking AWESOME ARTIST-GENIUSES who started up the project:

They soon learned that incoming first year students, members of the class of 2024, had a similar idea:

The Merrall et. al. version of Tutt Library is amazingly detailed and accurate. Here’s the south entrance, with the statue of Chas, in real life:

and in Minecraft:

Even the interiors are detailed and accurate. At least one librarian — we’re not saying who — has made sure his office has correct signage.

Thank you, CC minecrafters, for brightening up all of our quarantines and making us miss each other even more than before!
