College Renovations at the University of Pennsylvania
3 January 2003 (collegiateway.org) — The University of Pennsylvania is probably the largest university that has ever converted to a collegiate system. Penn officials have been working with enthusiasm and dedication for more than ten years to restructure campus life, and eleven collegiate houses are now up and running. A gradual renovation of the university’s facilities to support the college system has been underway for many years, and this past fall a major component of that renovation was completed: the reconstruction of Penn’s quadrangle to support Spruce House, Ware House, and Woodland House. Walter Crimm of the architectural firm of Ewing Cole Cherry Brott, a subscriber to the Collegiate Way mailing list, was one of the consulting architects on the project and he invites people interested in the Penn renovations to read about them in a story by Ashley Parker in the Daily Pennsylvanian for 29 August 2002.
