Restoring an Architectural Jewel
Ohio Wesleyan Renovates Historic Stuyvesant Hall
On May 12, 2011, Ohio Wesleyan broke ground for a 15-month renovation of Stuyvesant Hall, our oldest residential facility and one of 11 campus buildings on the National Register of Historic Places.
The project will transform 74,000 square feet, including:
Stuyvesant Hall was considered a model for residence halls nationwide when it opened in 1931, and this renovation will restore its status as a premier living facility.
“Stuyvesant Hall is a gem that needs polish,” President Rock Jones says. “When the work is complete, this magnificent building again will exemplify the outstanding residential campus experience that Ohio Wesleyan seeks to provide for all students.”
The spring groundbreaking was made possible by many generous donations, including an anonymous $5 million “challenge gift” that urged work to begin quickly on this priority project. To date, nearly $16.1 million has been pledged, but fund-raising continues to ensure this project is financed fully with private gifts.
Creating a Legacy
Several naming opportunities remain within Stuyvesant Hall, offering OWU alumni and friends a chance to create a permanent campus legacy.
Those who make a minimum $25,000 gift will be invited to name a room inside the hall, and those who make a minimum $50,000 gift will be invited to name an entire suite. These are wonderful opportunities to celebrate a lifelong connection to Ohio Wesleyan.
