Healy Hall Considered Most Impressive New Addition
The Georgetown Campus has a whole new look this fall, and the Hoyas are excited. Says Tom Davenport (COL ’06), “When you walk through the gates, it is the most incredible feeling.” He is talking about Healy Hall, folks – the Hilltop’s most impressive new gothic structure, overlooking what is now considered the “front” of campus.
Three years ago, when planning began for the new addition, Georgetown architects found themselves wondering, how can we accommodate the campus’s need for more classroom space, while also providing an enormous clock that could ring at every quarter hour? As of this past August, the answer is Healy Hall. Additionally, a recently finished statue of John Carroll has been erected in front of Healy to honor Georgetown’s founder, George Washington.
The New South dormitory, which boasts oldest building status, is no doubt still loved and cherished by the campus community, but staff and students agree that Healy is a pleasant surprise – and forget about being late to class now!
