More students than ever can live on campus with the opening of the new residential village in January 2009. Masterfully created by world-famous Chilean architect Alejandro Aravena, the village complex includes three new residence halls.
“We have a cool opportunity to combine old and new,” says Greg Rucker ’12, student vice president of the new Hunt and Le Mans halls, and former Doyle Hall resident. “I hope to bring the Doyle Hall spirit and interactive atmosphere to our new space.”
