Proctor’s brand new, net-zero ready dining facility, the Brown Dining Commons, opened its doors in September 2016, followed by a new dormitory on the west end of campus in December. These buildings represent the first two completed projects in a $30 million capital campaign to address Proctor’s aging infrastructure and learning spaces. Earlier this summer, Proctor shifted its attention to the aging Farrell Field House where a complete renovation of the building will overhaul the gymnasium, fitness center, and former dining hall into a facility focused on the health and well-being of Proctor’s students, faculty, and staff. New classrooms and wellness studios will reside on the southern end of the building, while a new fitness center, athletic training room, and office spaces will overlook a refinished gymnasium on one side and the Farrell Field turf field complex on the other.
This phased project is underway, with Phase 1 (new gym floor) scheduled to be ready in September, and Phase 2 (new fitness center, athletic training room, office spaces) scheduled for completion in December 2017. Stay tuned for more updates as this project continues!
