Sprucing Up Sespe

Thacher's smallest dorm gets some big interior upgrades!
One of the School's oldest dormitories just got a brand new look. While the original footprint of the building was maintained, the interior is brand new. As reported by Director of Facilities Ed Bennett, "Sespe is now the most sustainable dorm on campus. It was renovated to California Title 24 building standards, which are the equivalent of LEED Gold. Along with insulation and the most energy-efficient windows on campus, there are ceiling fans in each room and a heated floor in the bathroom area. A kitchenette was dug out of the crawlspace as was a new washer dryer room for the bottom floor. In addition, a faculty residence was constructed on the north end and it may have the best views on campus!"

The construction took place over the summer and fall months and the junior and senior girls were so excited to move into their new home away from home. Dorm Head Bob St. George is glad that the girls are now settled into the newly renovated dorm. "Sespe is special because it is a smaller community within the Hill complex. The Sespe girls create a tight bond with each other."

Senior Poppy Brittingham commented, "My favorite features are the walk-in closet and the remote controlled fan. I also love the big windows because all the light is good for my plants!"
