After much excited anticipation, the ribbon on the new Aliki Perroti Educational Center is set to be cut on November 11. Through her transformative gift to fund this project, long-time friend and patron Mrs. Aliki Perroti has paved the way for Perrotis College students and faculty to reach exciting new levels of engaged learning and research that will have a lasting effect on the school.
One of the largest developments to be undertaken on campus, the project includes major new construction, along with the renovation of an existing building to be named the Seth Frank Hall of Graduate Studies. Located near the entrance to campus in an area wooded with pine, the new building is designed to blend harmoniously with its surroundings and embody the ethical and sustainable practices that characterize our campus.
Designed by the award-winning Thessaloniki firm of Kouloukouris & Associates, the three-story, 36,000-square-foot facility will accommodate classrooms, amphitheaters, labs, communal spaces and study areas for 600 undergraduate and 100 graduate level students. The building is conceived according to sustainable design principles, with materials and structural elements selected to make optimum use of the natural environment while reducing the building's energy footprint.
