The College is excited to announce the successful completion of the quiet phase of our residence hall capital campaign. With the help of a $1 million match from an anonymous donor and generous gifts from alumni, parents, friends, and community supporters, we are happy to announce that we have raised 80% of our $3.4 million fundraising goal. We are also excited to note that this campaign and the project have received strong support by the College’s Board of Trustees and administrative leadership and among our faculty and staff.
Our goal is to raise the remaining $690,000 by the end of this year. Groundbreaking and construction will begin this summer, and we anticipate that the new residence hall will open for students in August 2016, for the start of the 2016-17 academic year. The residence hall will provide more than 110 new residence spaces on campus and will make it possible for more of our students to live on campus beyond their freshman and even sophomore years. We are excited to invite all of our alumni and friends to participate in this campaign.
