Stokes Hall opened for classes January 14. The 183,000-square-foot facility includes 36 classrooms and houses the classical studies, English, history, philosophy, and theology departments, the Honors Program, additional offices, and an oak-trimmed common area with coffee bar (above). Collegiate Gothic in style, and sited on a former parking lot, it is the first academic building erected on the Chestnut Hill Campus in 22 years and the second largest (after Higgins Hall). It is named in appreciation of a $22 million gift by Patrick T. ’64 and Anna-Kristina Stokes.
