January Athletics Review

What a View!

Dec 14, '18

As most of you know, the North of Plaza space (the area north of the Ross Building) has been transformed. The breeze-block building that once housed Privett House, a gymnasium, a dining hall, academic space, art space, and a theatre, is now no more.
