Bryn Athyn, PA— Cooper and Goodenough Halls open their doors to eager first-year students just in time for move-in. These most recent additions to Bryn Athyn College’s attractive campus reflect the growth in enrollment projected for the small college just outside of Philadelphia. College President, Brian Blair, says “This is an indication of our plans to expand our facilities to serve a growing student population. We will continue to develop this campus as one of the most beautiful in the area.”
The handsome building plans were drafted with their impressive architectural environment in mind, adding materials like stone and wood that echo design elements in the adjacent Bryn Athyn Historic District. The style and placement of Cooper and Goodenough Halls are also a natural complement to the existing residential and academic structures on campus.
With the college’s master plan calling for new buildings and expansion of academic programs, this gem of the Philadelphia area is drawing increased attention from first year and transfer students alike. “We are pleased to be increasing our student body,” President Blair added, “and we are excited to offer these students well designed and comfortable places in which to learn, study, and live during their college experience.”
Cooper and Goodenough Halls each house 41 students, and connect via a common space designed for group meetings and social gatherings. The addition of these structures completes a ring of five residential buildings, which are joined together by an attractive plaza that is currently under construction. A formal dedication will take place at 4 p.m. on October 14.
