Linden Hall plans open house Sept. 14
Linden Hall has announced the opening of the Evita M. Allen Center for Academic Excellence. The new facility, located in the center of the school’s 47-acre campus, is the largest campus project in recent memory.
Design plans for the $6 million project began in late 2009 and were well married with the school’s historic existing facilities. Construction kicked off in May 2011 and the school utilized a wide range of local contractors and suppliers. The 28,000 square-foot, energy-efficient facility was completed as scheduled in late August for the start of the 2012-2013 school year.
The center houses the school’s administrative offices including Headmaster, Admissions, Dean of Students, and College Counseling. The center is also home to:
? Multi-media library and research center featuring collaborative group learning spaces, extensive online research capabilities, and a multi-touch ideum table;
? Flexible, collaborative classrooms with state-of-the-art technologies including Smart Boards;
? The first-ever green roof in Lititz, visible from the historic third-floor porch from which students have been peering out onto campus since the 1700s;
? The new computer lab.
The Center features modern conveniences juxtaposed with architectural design elements that represent the school’s history. All spaces are designed to encourage collaboration between students and between students and teachers.
"We are beyond excited for the opening of our Center for Academic Excellence," says Dr. Vincent M. Stumpo, Linden Hall’s Headmaster. "This amazing, new building is truly the heart of our campus and transforms our ability to serve students, faculty, alumnae, guests, and prospective families."
The public is invited to a community open house to view the new facility on Sept. 14 from 5 to 8 p.m. The event includes self-guided tours and refreshments.
