Westwood Dormitory Built

John Campbell and his wife Buffy donate funds for Westwood, a dormitory for twenty-eight freshmen girls that replicates the Campbell model for boys. The new building is an especially appropriate focus of their philanthropy, since they parented three female graduates of George School.

Westwood occupies a convenient, tree-shaded spot close to Main building and the Student Health Center. It is actually a late-twentieth-century extension of an earlier building, which at one time housed drawing and painting classes on the ground floor and female blue-collar employees on the second floor. It was the site of the first ceramics kiln, the early beginning of art opportunities.

Westwood’s proximity to Orton, the home of sophomore boys, keeps resident teachers alert to forestall any undue intimacy.
