The Wave Field & Wilson Center
Probably one of the most well-known North Campus landmarks is the Wave Field. Maya Lin, the artist who made the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington D.C., installed the work in 1995. Tucked behind the Francois-Xavier Bagnoud Building, the work is meant to mimic sine waves and is a favorite locale for testing robots and rovers.
Just next door is the Wilson Center where student organizations – including the Solar Car team, MRover, Michigan Electric Racing, and Baja Racing – build and house their creations.

The North Campus Recreation Building, or the NCRB, features improved cardio, strength, and group exercise areas, updated racquetball courts, a resurfaced track, air conditioning, new ADA-accessible locker rooms and sauna, plus more windows and light.
