Bidwell House, Sitka House, Aspen House, and Sequoia House
were opened in fall 2008 on the north side of campus at the edge of the Reed canyon. Each
of the three-story buildings house 25-35 students, split between single and divided-double
These new buildings are designed with sustainability in mind, and are LEED (Leadership
in Energy and Environmental Design) certified. The project's "green" features
include landscaping that filters storm water runoff into a natural spring; ventilation
stacks built to resemble chimneys that will cool the buildings naturally; and an array
of environmentally sensitive materials such as flooring, window glass, and roof tiles.
