Campaign Priorities

Campus Green & Outdoor Living and Recreation Space

Create space for connection and moments of joy in the outdoors

The Campus Green in addition to the Outdoor Living and Recreation Space will create exterior areas for reflection and restoration, and further build community, teaching the value of social capital by extending areas for meeting, engaging, sharing, and learning. Overall, the addition of this space in the heart of campus will enhance the student experience, supporting moments of joy to create balance within rigor of the academic day.

Outdoor Living and Recreation Space

Adjacent to the student center will be a new outdoor living and recreation space for students, faculty, and staff to connect and unwind. It will include swinging benches, seating areas, ping pong tables, 4-square courts, a basketball court, fire pit, and a gaga ball pit. On sunny days, community members can enjoy shade from native trees within the surrounding grove such as American sycamore, swamp white oak, black tupelo, and red sunset maple. How pretty it will be in the fall!

Campus Green

Completed in the summer of 2021, new landscaping and hardscaping within the heart of campus allow students, faculty, and staff to gather for outdoor meetings, classes, and recreation such as picnics and lawn games.

A new outdoor performance venue, Finnegan’s on the Green will be located just outside Kehs Hall, facing the heart of campus. While primarily intended for student concerts, the space may also be used for improv shows, dance performances, standup comedy, and open mic nights.

A grass pavement system on the campus green will allow visitors to park on the grass for on-campus events. Formed by plastic webbing, this is an attractive and green alternative to a concrete or asphalt surface, providing a solid surface with traction for vehicles to park and for people to walk upon. The entire campus green is served by irrigation and drainage systems.

“The campus green and outdoor living space are where students can pause and have a conversation with a faculty member, their advisor, their best friend, or maybe somebody new.”

Carol Dougherty P ’11, ’13, Associate Head of School
