A New Haertter Hall — complete!
The 53,000-square-foot Haertter Hall sits on the footprint of the outdoor pool and the grassy area to its west.
Programmatically, the performing arts/assembly hall centralizes all teaching, practice and performance space for the music, dance and theatre programs. It is a smart building, marrying technology with design, to meet the specific acoustical needs of music and theatre. Designed with a main floor and balcony, the building seats 730 for morning assembly and major productions. The balcony can be closed off to create a more intimate space for smaller productions and meetings. The building includes a black box theatre, costume storage, dressing rooms, a scene shop, a dance studio, a band room, a choral room, music storage and rehearsal rooms.
A New Athletic Center - complete!
The 60,000-square-foot athletic center is located on the south side of the Olin Field House, just east of the Clayton Road parking lot. It includes a multi-level gymnasium to accommodate 600 to 800 spectators, a weight room and fitness center with cardio equipment. It also has locker room space for visiting teams and officials, additional lockers for varsity athletes and coaches, team meeting rooms, office space and equipment rooms.
The Commons - complete!
The Cissel Center and Commons were renovated to create a “main street” for student activities. The Commons (with a view of the expanded Quadrangle) features space for each grade, college counseling offices, conference rooms and offices.
The Quadrangle - coming soon!
The Quadrangle has been reoriented on an east-west axis and expanded three-fold to provide more green space in the center of campus for students and a venue for community gatherings. Landscaping is underway, completing this 18-month project.
