Slideshow: St. Gladys Hall Progress Update
Progress continues apace on construction of the College’s next classroom building, St. Gladys Hall. “The building is now more than 50 percent complete and on schedule for being ready for use by late June,” reports Vice President for Finance and Administration Peter L. DeLuca. “The basic structure is about complete. Filling in details and interior and exterior finish work — along with the exterior paving — are most of what remains.”
St. Gladys Hall sits on the south side of the academic quadrangle, adjacent to St. Bernardine of Siena Library and perpendicular to Our Lady of the Most Holy Trinity Chapel. The new building — the thirteenth constructed since the College acquired its campus in the 1970s — will house eight classrooms designed to facilitate the small, seminar discussions that are at the heart of the College’s unique academic program. Construction of St. Gladys Hall is made possible through a $3.2 million grant from the Fritz B. Burns Foundation of Los Angeles.
