"Chester" and "Sassafras," the first Washington College buildings to utilize "eco-friendly" geothermal heating and cooling, will be ready for student occupants in August. The three-story buildings will each house a hundred students in suites and semi-suites.
Hodson Dining Hall
A two-story structure housing dining facilities and an expansive student center with an open performance area, a game room and an office suite for student activities and student government.
Gibson Center for the Arts
The renovated and expanded Gibson Center for the Arts features a smaller and more intimate Tawes Theater along with two new performance spaces—a 200-seat recital hall and a 150-seat experimental theater—plus an art gallery, classrooms, and faculty offices for music and drama. The front façade, a beautiful glass lobby overlooking Martha Washington Square, provides a dramatic backdrop for impromptu outdoor performances.
