Beauty from Ashes

In April 2018, one of the main campus residential buildings (Parker Hall) was partly consumed by a fire caused by a tree falling on a nearby power line. Thankfully, there were no injuries, but much of the building’s contents were lost—and 125 students and staff members were suddenly displaced.

The following six months were a period of disruption and inconveniences, but we can now happily report that Parker Hall has been rebuilt and reopened, better than ever, with an autumn ribbon cutting.
